Designer Comments about the new version 2:
I added more gusset increases and widened the heel flap.
Then I increased the number of sts for the cuff. The additional sts are worked in a rib up the center back of the sock

Special thanks to Nicola Swinnerton who test knit the new, revised version 2 socks.
