Oh, thank you so much for the links, Jemm. I think they may be just what I was looking for and not finding. I've looked at links that say faux heel flap or heel flap for toe up socks but couldn't find just how it's done. That pattern makes it clear. You're wonderful!
If you can knit mittens, you can knit socks. I've yet to use a sock pattern, I learned to do toes and heels and the rest is just spiraling stockinette or ribbing. Whatever socks you decide to do or if you're looking for instructions on how to do it w/o a pattern, be sure to ask any questions you have. I know I have lots of links in my blog thread (link in sig) if you can find them or I can find them and post them for you. I use the Lifestyle Socks
method myself, others learned from other sources. The no swatch part was what decided it for me. I just make them fit. Till you learn how, socks are mysterious things that look scary hard. Once you learn how, basic socks are easy. I think you'll enjoy them.
