Toe-up heel-flap...at last!

Started: 04th March 2007
Finished: WIP
Yarn: On Line Supersocke 100, colour #907
Needle: 2.5 mm/ US #1-2 Addi Turbos (using MagicLoop method)
Pattern: Universal Toe-up Sock using Magic Cast-On
NB: Gusset and heel-flap construction based loosely on the method from Stitch Stud and His Bride

After having frogged the toe-up JayWalker because of the heel, and sending my Boyfriend Sock to the shredded graveyard also because of the heel (and the umpteenth times of frogging), something finally clicked in my head and I had the feeling that I could wrap my mind around the construction of gusset and heel-flap on toe-up socks. So, I pulled out a hibernating project and tried it out....

Voilà, it worked! The fit is perfect (pretty much on the snug-side, but I like it that way)...although I think I've done something wrong with the heel-base (forgot the short-row increase) because I ended up with 8 stitches less when I was done with the heel-flap....but I just fudged it and did some increases.

*Yay! for me*

I'm debating with myself whether I should just make this an anklet, so that I could start on the other side and practice the gusset and heel-flap again. Besides, I'm pretty *meh* about the colourway....the first word that comes to mind when I see the light-green is "barf". *LOL*

So, what do you think? Anklet or full sock?
