I’ve called these the Loud and Proud socks on Ravelry because of the fabulous colour scheme of this yarn. The pattern is called Marmolejo, and it’s good in that it’s free but not the best sock pattern I’ve used otherwise. I chose it because I wanted to knit a contrasting heel, which looks best when knit as an afterthought.

I’ve never tried this type of heel before. I don’t think it fits as tightly as a turned heel but apparently it means you can replace it if it wears out. Here are some pics showing how it’s knit.
