help with "reverse dutch heel" (toe up)
hi there!

i have decided to try this heel next on the sock I am working on. i understand everything, but i just want to get your opinions on it. the link is here:

http://www.socknitters.com/toe-up/lessonfour.htm

essentially my question has to do with the flap. it says "after you've completed your gusset increases," blah blah do flap. basically i will be stopping at approximately 6 inches and then beginning my gusset increases, which I am going to do a total of 16 (8 on each side) so that will take me 16 rows. my gauge is *about* 10 rows an inch, so 16 rows will have me at approximately 7-1/2 inches, give or take, which means my little flap will have to be about 2 inches long in order to go under my heel... that's the part I'm not sure on and I can't really tell from the picture... it has "small heel flap" in the diagram on this page:

and it looks pretty small.... Does 2 inches or so seem right?

Thanks a bunch!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
