what was I thinking
I'm not used to working Wrap & Turn heels, so I paid careful attention to make sure I did it right. And then I knit the heel flap on auto pilot. Instead of the ribbed heel I opted for an eye of partridge heel, but what was I thinking?! A ribbed heel would have flowed seamlessly into the pattern of the leg with striking effect.
Part of me says I should rip and redo. But most of me says, nope, carry on. After all the heel looks fine. If I were to rip, I'd probably end up ripping out the entire sock to start over. I don't like my chances of picking up all those twisted stitches and yarn overs on the instep. So here's the deal: if I knit this pattern again, I'll definitely do the heel as written, but for this pair of socks I'm going with the altered heel.
What would you do?
