[Knitting] Fish Lips Heels

Has anyone tried the Fish Lips Heel pattern for socks that was $1.00 US on Ravelry?  I'm always looking for a better way to do heels and wanted some opinions.

Thanks in advance

It's only a few pages to use - at the end of the pattern (a page or less among the leven pages!). Since I discovered this heel,  I always do my socks with the fish lips kiss heel and it's very easy ! You can use it with no problem!

It is well worth the $1.00!  It is easy to memorize, fits well, and you get a big PDF on why it works, and how to use a cutout to make a perfect fit sock for anyone, so you get so much more then just a small pattern for your money.

I only do my socks with this heel. I find it the easiest. Twords the end of the pattern is only section you use to knit.

Thanks, the length itself seemed like a terrible task!

I love your Avatar (looks like a knit version of my Jack :-)  I really am a newbie to the site - where can I post pictures?  I many of the items I've made on Ravelry.  I knit whatever strikes my fancy LOL.  I have a new great-grandson due in September so I'll make another Henry's Sweater (made one for the last grandchild born in November), and I'll crochet the same blanket for this new great-grandson that I crocheted for his dad when he was born.  I love making shawls, hats, socks (don't necessarily knit garments for myself but I am working on a sleeveless top with Plucky Knitter fingering yarn).

I have this pattern, and i know that it is on the sight. i found the directions very confusing. So there goes another method that i though would help me make socks. lol i must have a dozen different ways to make socks and have yet to master them   Good luck

I knit socks all the time and the ones you pointed me to are lovely.  I'm really interested in the Fish Lips Heel though and I think these are all done with a gusset flap.  The Fish Lips Heel is a pattern published on Ravelry for a very nominal fee but as another posted pointed out, the directions seem to be a bit confusing.  I'm thinking this particular way of knitting the heel may be confusing to most folks (even those of us who have been knitting for a very long time).  My guild is sponsoring Candace Eisner Strick and she will be teaching her "Strick-ly Sock" - the heel and toe are knit flat but there's no seaming so it should prove very interesting.  I'm sure there will be a handout and if I can figure out how to post it I will.  Thanks for the advice and being so kind as to check for me - very much appreciated.

I've finally discovered how to resize some photos and am uploading them to finished projects.  I knit sweaters, shawls, socks, tons of baby stuff (with 13 grandchildren, one great-granddaughter, and another great-grandson due in September) I'm kept pretty busy and usually not for me :-(

I bought the pattern but is way too long for me to sit and read it. It's a shame because most knitters seem to like it. I have been thinking that I need to make some tea, relax and sit with the pattern to see if I can finally understand it (I am a visual learner but there are no video tutorials since it's a pay for pattern )
The heel I like and it's very good for socks that will have lots of use is the one that comes on the free pattern: Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder (the garter stitch - slip stitch heel is very good)
