I've used Fleegle's heel for 2 pairs of socks and it is wonderful! Nice fit, no holes, and the instructions are clearly written. For toe-up socks, this will be my go-to-heel.

I have just been reading the posts about the fleegle heel, which I never heard of! I have been a member here since the beginning, but not posting for a while. I may have to try this sometime soon, as I love to knit socks. We can always learn new tricks. Barb

Barb, you might also want to try "Fish Lips Kiss Heel" on your next pair of socks. I constantly try new ways of making sock heels.

Kristina, have you made this heel? I enjoy trying new heels, too ... does this work for high insteps where the heel must be deeper than "average?"

Thanks for the link! I think I will get that e-book.

Yes, I just finished a pair of socks that I designed myself where I used this heel. The designer suggested to add one inch of plain knitting after the heel is done, but I added one and a half inches to make sure that my heel fitted without pulling. That worked. Check my Flickr page for a picture of my socks with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. It's the champagne colored sock.

I've tried both the Fleegle Heel and the Fish-Kiss. I have a very high instep and even heels that are supposed to be good "even for high insteps" aren't. Fleegle Heel works well for me. Fish-Kiss was a bit tight on the first sock so I added a gusset of a few stitches to its mate, and the second sock is more comfortable. The first sock, without a bit of a gusset, is still wearable, however.

I try other heels but keep returning to the Fleegle Heel. Having said that, though, I haven't tried the Fish Lips Kiss yet. I'll use that on my next pair.
