Kirsten's friend saw this pattern and said "It kind of reminds me of a yarrow stalk with all it's leaves." This awoke the gardener in Kirsten. The botanical name for yarrow is "Achillea". It is named for Achilles of Greek myth; magnificent warrior, hero of Troy. I'm sure you've all heard the story, his only vulnerability was his heel, and this eventually led to his demise. I thought this would be the perfect name for a sock. And so, Achillea it is, the flower or the hero, your choice.
