This is my current 'desk' project. It keeps me company while I work. The design is called 'Florenz' (a pattern from the Yahoo group Socken-Kreativ-Liste). I can see the arches of Florence in this pattern. I am intimidated by short row heels and so I tried to do a heel flap instead. The stripes on the heel flap take away from design, so I am going to rip it back and knit a green heel flap using the eye of partridge. The yummy peach colored yarn is from La Petite Knitterie (a prize from Twisted Knitster's blog contest), and the green is Wildfoote.

I can't believe you of all people are intimidated by short row heels. Just kidding but I see the projects you take on and it just inspires me to keep pressing my skills further. I knew you would find a great use for the peach yarn from La Petite Knitterie. I agree with your thought to rip the stripes and go solid green. Just beautiful!!!!
