The three-year socks

I started these socks three years ago (gulp) when I was on vacation. I cast them aside because one of the wooden needles I was using was a bit scraggly and every time I came around to that needle I would get frustrated when it caught on the yarn (of course, it didn't occur to me to swap out the offensive needle until a year had passed). I had various other doubts about these socks (too dense, not dense enough, why did i do the heel flap so shallow, the ribbing section is too short and on and on). Also, wasn't loving the pooling. All this whining and fretting for a plain ole pair of vanilla socks -- but you guys get it right? I knew you would :)

The details: 
Yarn - Socks that Rock Silkie (from Sock Summit #1)
Needles: 2.5 and also 2.75 when I had my doubts
Pattern: Plain ole basic sock
