Mine was Wollywasch, it doesn't say color name, and I got it from my Secret Pal trade in May.

i wonder if you could use short row heels and toes on these. i just learned them the other day and i don't think i will EVER go back to flap/gusset construction.

I don't know what you mean. Can you explain?

i was just wondering if i could maybe do the heel with short rows instead of flap and gusset. looking at the design, i really think i could.

I just don't know what doing with short rows rather than flap / gusset means.

Remember, this is only my 2nd sock.

But I'm sure you can do the heel any way you want.

Short row heels give a more "store bought" look to them. Some people find them easier, some people just view them as different. There are instructions Here: http://alison.knitsmiths.us/shortrow_tutorial.html

These socks are adorable!! May have to go on my "list of socks to make list"
