Shooting stocking heel.

I am really starting to get my knitting mojo back with this sock. I love this yarn...the feel of it as you knit is just perfect. The yarn slides so nicely across the needles and the pattern definition is outstanding.

I have been working away on the leg and then the heel flap

Of course, I couldn't put it down until I finished the entire heel...

When stretch out on the leg, the pattern is quite nice. I actually could pull the leg up to my knee...and immediately wanted an pair of knee socks in this yarn...for myself!

Must make knee socks.

Well, what yarn is it? Is there some backstory? I think I missed it.

I love it! I think I recognize the pattern--is that from knitting vintage socks?

Ooh, I never seriously considered making these, but yours is very nice indeed. And your picked-up stitches along the heel flap -- invisible! I wish mine were so neat and invisible.
