I folded 1,000 of these back when the US first invaded Iraq and prayed for peace with each one. Some went to friends, some went to the graveyard at Manzanaar and some are still in my house. So far, my wish hasn't been granted. I may have to fold another 1,000.

"C" is also for "complete" as in, it feels good to COMPLETE something like a pair of socks!

I love these socks, I love Cookie's patterns, but I really really do NOT love the heel gusset and flap. They don't fit my feet well, too wide, as is obvious in one of the pictures. This is fine and comfy in a pair of house socks, but if I'm knitting a pair to wear with shoes, I'm definitely going to stick to my tried and true short row heel. That one never fails to fit juuust right.

Now I'm off to the salt mines, where we are doing our post holiday, pre-fiscal-year-end inventory from hell all night. Please God, let there not be a million recounts. I've been precounting all week. I might just cry.

Those socks are gorgeous! I really hate heel flap socks as well because they never fit me. I'm totally sold on the short row heel.

Wow. Those socks are THE BOMB!! Love'em! I know you were a bit worried about the colorway with that pattern but they're stunning.
