Hundertwasser, titled "Tender Dinghi." A very interesting artist, whom I had previously never heard of. He designed apartment buildings with trees growing out of them, and had some very original ideas. Check this out: Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna. The things one learns while knitting!
I didn't really follow a pattern. I used a simple 3 x 1 rib for the leg and instep (knit 3, purl one). I knit them toe-up with the trifecta of: Judy Becker's Magic Cast-On, the Fleegle Heel, and Jen's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. The heel does not fit as well as some other heels I have done, sadly, because it was much easier than the short-row, wrap & turn heels used by most toe-up patterns. So, I have yet to perfect my heel technique. But, I love the colors and I'm sure I will wear these a lot.
