Comments:  As usual, I love the socks. I don't know how well the yarn will hold up to wear, not having any nylon in it and being somewhat soft, but they sure are comfy.

I've become pretty darn good at the heel/gusset thing. No more holes to sew shut. Yay!

It's a simple 4x2 rib in the leg.

I'm thinking about writing the pattern up. I started out doing someone else's pattern, but due to problems with said pattern, I abandoned it and did my own thing. Hmm, will think about it.

Live long and prosper.\\//
