Yarn Pirate Socks in the Snow

Here's the Finished Object Picture of my socks made from Yarn Pirate 50/50 Merino/Tencel yarn.

Anyone ever figure out a way to stop the pooling/flashing of color around the heel and instep? I just
tolerate it.

Notice all the flower petals everywhere? Looks like it's snowing on the west side of the house; the Fruitless Pear is in Flower. This is always the first thing that flowers each year. I'm not sure but I think that freezing cold we had for a couple weeks really brought on the flowers. Everyone's trees are in full flower; really beautiful.

Here's my cyclamen on the back step surrounding by falling petals.

And the edge of the grass and stepping stones.

A short row heel or afterthought heel stops that pooling. Alternatively, you could so some striping with another end of the same yarn, at a different place in the color cycle.
