Latest sock blanks

I finally finished the socks I was working on. Most of these socks were knit while a passenger in a car - either to the cottage with my husband driving or to the office while my boss drove.
They are fraternal,
but I was closer to making them identical than I realized. Luckily, this doesn't bother me, but I'm sure my friend Helga is cringing right now...
I haven't put the heels in, and probably won't for a while, at least until I determine who they're for. There is a very good possibility these will hang on until Christmas - perhaps my Father in Law, perhaps a friend.
On to the next ones!

Nicely done on the socks. I'm not that bothered by mismatched socks either.

Those afterthought heels are a great fitting feature.

Nice socks! But...I'm baffled as to how you can add heels at a later time as I've never seen anyone do that. I've heard about it on blogs but haven't seen how it's done. It sounds very interesting.

I still havent done any after thought heels. Is it easy? Time consuming?
