I've reached the heel flap on both stockings. I've added a reinforcing thread to each heel flap and will use it through the short row shaping for the heel cup and the toe.
I'm liking how the stockings look, but dang they are taking a while to complete. Please keep in mind that more than 2 weeks is a long time for me to complete stockings. Now that the cabeling is done in the back most of the knitting will be seed stitch so that should speed up the foot.
