Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

I have just put in a life line. That bit of pinkish yarn to the left. And I am beginning the heel flap. Those rows or stripes are only on the back. The pattern continues on the front of the sock. As it is being knitted now the sock is a bit tight on me, and I have narrow feet. I think the next one I will go up a size needle to 2.50mm and I may add an extra stitch between each square. The other option is to only do the pattern on the front for the whole sock.
You may have noticed the ribbing is a bit on the short side. That was my impatience to start the pattern. I am seriously thinking of striping the cuff. Of course one doesn't want to make people blind with all the stripes :-)
