Mods: I did my usual slip-stitch heel pattern for these ones, and I definitely made the heel flap longer than the pattern calls for. Apparently I have a rather large instep, so extra depth in the heel pocket (I made that term up) is helpful.
Verdict: I love them, and I'm really glad I did a knit-a-long with Pippa. I saw more of her sock progress last night at knitting group, and hers are super cute, too! We're going to be the most stylish people studying in that stinking library.
