Anyway, these are some super basic socks I finished up while I was in DC, so nearly a month ago. I've just been so lazy with the blogging.
This is not really my usual colorway. I don't remember buying it, I don't know why I bought it, and I'm not entirely sure why I knit it right now. It's not like I don't have a million other sock yarns in the stash. I think I was just in the mood for something self striping.
It's the usual formula, plain stockinette with a little ribbing at the top. The only change up here is the improvised German heel. I'm not claiming it's a real German heel, because I don't know much about it. I do know that the first and last three stitches of the heel flap are in garter stitch, and the rest is in stockinette. I think that's the defining characteristic of that type of heel, but part of me suspects there's more to it.
