Class Description:

The Afterthought Heel adds life to your socks; not only with its jazzy appearance and contrasting color, but also by providing the opportunity to save your socks if the unthinkable happens. Because the heel is worked last, you can easily replace it if it should ever wear out. You will learn how to work the amazing afterthought heel and can get started on your own pair of eye-catching Falling Dominoes socks. With their cascading spirals of traveling stitches, Falling Dominoes socks are knitted from the cuff to the toe.
