I showed a photo of my poor ball winding on my FAL list in October.
I did though finish my wonderfully stripy socks. The pattern is available on Ravelry as Hermiones Everyday socks - I just reversed it to knit toe up instead. I also knitted a Fish Lips Kiss Heel on them to try and preserve the stripe pattern as much as possible (it would have got quite narrow if I'd knittted a heel flap and gusset.
This is the second pair of FLK heels I've knitted for me, and I think that overall I actually prefer the fit and feel of a gusset and heel flap. Just personal choice and I know it's a brilliant heel pattern for lots of people (and I have knitted it on a couple of other pairs)
