Because... somebody though that... it looked like.... the eye of a partridge...??? :??

(I know... I'm a lot of help, aren't I?)

Is that your sock? It's a lovely heel regardless of the funky name. I'm going to have to try it on my next pair.

Maybe because the partridge's head looks like the head/gusset?

Iam doing that right now.
The pattern is like this


Row 1-s1,k1 to end
Row 2-purl next row
Row 3-k1,sl to end
Row 4-purl next row

etc.
It gives a neat little bumpy texture.
Don't Know why its named that..lol

Here is a list of links (http://mysite.verizon.net/vze8mnnp/toesheels.html) to a bunch of different types of toe and heel, including the eye of partridge.

Oh, I love that heel. Is that your sock?? It's so very pretty. I love the colors. I always do the sl1 k1, purl next row heel. I will have to branch out to some different ones.

(Thanks Kemp for the suggestions.)
