And one more to go! I was a little skeptical of this heel when knitting it, as it just looks odd when it's not on an actual foot. But it fits great! This is Lara Neel's "thumb-joint" heel (pattern is Fork in the Road, a freebie!). I'll take a better picture of it when I finish the second sock, but it's basically the same kind of decreases you'd use when shaping the top of a hat. I was equally skeptical of doing the exact same shaping to make the toe (it looks similar to a star toe when finished) but that too turned out nicely! (and with the added benefit of not needing to kitchener the toe, if you're like me and dread that part) And if the lack of other photos is any hint, can you tell that these socks have been my sole obsession lately? I guess I'd better finish the second sock so I can get back to my other works-in-progress!
