Crazy, lazy, sock for me

I started these sneaker liners on the way back from camping a month ago, because I had finished the size 12 pair for my trainer and I had nothing to knit on the train home. I didn’t really work on them much over the month, but after I cleared by mothers jumper off the needles (photos on Friday, I promise) I picked them up, and finished them in a weekend.
 
I really do prefer the fit of a heel flap and gusset. This is the Yarn Harlot's pattern, but really, any 64 stitch heel flap and gusset pattern will do for me. 
 
They are not the colours I would have chosen for myself, but they were what I had. Also, I really did not want to be adding 30 grams of yarn to the left over sock yarn stash.
 
In fact, I ran out of yarn and had to finish the toes in LOSY. Better out than in, that’s what I say.
 
And so, I have a very wearable, durable, easy pair of socks to add to my sneaker liner collection. Which is quite timely, since I really need to do a wool wash and am down to two pairs of sneaker liners. I know what I'll be wearing to ride into work tomorrow.
