I'm not sure what it was about this colorway that appealed to me, other than the blue stripes, but these socks are fairly subdued and will be great for work.
I used the reinforcement thread (a spool of which is included inside the skein) for the heel flaps and heel turn but not for the toes. The reason for this is simple: I forgot to do it on the first sock and was too lazy to rip back, so then of course I had to do the second sock to match. I felt I needed it more in the heel area anyway, though, and I'll be watching these socks to see if there's any difference in how they wear. For now, the heel feels a little cushier, and the area of the short rows on the heel aren't as thin as they normally end up for me.
I have another FO that was finished last night, but it's still damp from the blocking and really deserves a good photo shoot, so you'll have to wait a day or two for the big reveal (though I'm sure you can guess what it is).
