I am still learning socks. This is my first gusset heel. The short row heel was easy to do, but the results for the gusset are much better. My only problem is knowing when to start it. I think I started it about 1/2 inch too late. And if you are thinking “That’s one looooong sock” it actually fits ok. Kinda sad… But my feet are 10 inches long 😦 It does look funny though.
In addition to finishing a sock today, I made my customary bird and got some bird fabric. The husband got some plants. The quilt shop and the nursery are right next to each other. It works out.

How neat to have a flower shop and a quilt shop close together! You socks look so cozy!
Thanks, I am hoping to fine tune the fit. lol
Look at you go with the socks! You are doing great!
The toe-up gusset heel has been my standard pattern for years. I think about trying a different heel, but then I always go back to the same pattern. It’s just so easy and makes for a good fit.
Thanks! I have a hard time figuring out when to start the gusset.
I start the gusset when I get to the point where my leg and foot connect. It takes some trial and error, but you’ll start to recognize where you need to start the gusset for your foot.
