The turn of the heel

I turned the heel on the sock for my pal.

But I will have to undo at least a part of the heel. See that little flap down there? It's just excess heel. I followed some instructions for that kind of heel, and that's the result.

Right now, I am actually thinking of ripping up the whole heel and making the leg part a bit longer. It looked long enough, but then I tried it on... do you think I should make it longer?

The cute pink cardigan I'm maybe planning on knitting is not from Rebecca Magazine #29 but from #27! I got the editions mixed up.

Yes . . . I think the leg should be a bit longer.

The socks are lovely. That yarn is very special. Not sure about the flap on the heel flap. What's it supposed to be for??

Thanks Lola Lee! I will make it longer.

@alison: I'm glad you like the yarn!
I followed the instruction which said to keep only 5 stitches in the middle part, then turning the heel. I kept 6 stitches, and they make a flap. I guess that I should keep 16 stitches instead... that should be ok.
