Knitted socks with blended-yarn heel and toe

Feet enclosed in hand-knit, yellow-green socks. A yellow-green ball of yarn with four double-pointed knitting needles is positioned on top of the feet. Next to them are a skein of dark-green nylon thread wrapped on cardboard and a larger skein of varigated green, brown and gold yarn.
These socks, worked in an olive Ella Rae Classic Superwash, extend the ribbed leg pattern down the length of the foot.

Original directions come from Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd. But like my inaugural pair of hand-knit socks, these socks were knit to toe-specific right and left shapes.

The heel incorporates a dark-green nylon reinforcing thread while the toe adds a varigated green and brown sock yarn.
