LOL! My feet are about a 7.5, so I might be okay. I haven't dug out the blue loom yet, but I think my foot is small enough that I can try them on as I go to make sure they're long enough.

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

Neat, mio!! They are cute and look really comfy. I have to show this to my Mom. She does simple loom knitting but I think she'd have fun trying something like this.

Hmm, let's see.  You need to divide the number of pegs in half, and centre that half on the peg that holds the yarn (the one that sicks out sideways).

Wrap the leg coloured yarn around each peg, stopping before  that last quarter, then work the loops off.  Join the heel yarn on the peg after where you stopped to start the heel.

You need to do a "fast" decrease.  So, say you have 6 pegs on each side of the middle.  Wrap 6 pegs to the middle, then 5 more, knit the heel loops off.  Then go back, wrap to the middle, then do 4 more (then knit them off).  Go back, wrap to the middle, then 3 more (knit off).  Go back, wrap to the middle then 2 more.

Now you need to increase, but much more slowly.

Wrap back to the middle, then 2 more (knit off).  Wrap back to the middle, then 3 more (knit off) TWICE.  Wrap back to the middle then 4 more (knit off) TWICE.  Back to the middle then 5 more (knit) TWICE.  Back to the middle then 6 more (knit) TWICE. 

Cut the heel yarn.

Pick up your leg yarn and wrap the remaining pegs on that round (careful not to re-wrap the last one you did), knit all of the pegs that need it, then continue on as normal for the foot.

When I followed the instructions in the video I found there were large holes along the edges of the heel, which I sewed shut as I wove in the ends on my first attempt.  After that, I changed how I turned around when working in rows, and I'd sort of half-wrap the peg in the opposite direction before turning back, and don't knit that half-wrap.  Pretend it is one with the loop(s) that was already on the peg.

I hope this helps!
