I need some negative ease!
Love the stitch pattern!
Super loved the heel!
Well, there ups and downs about this test-knit, as there are any. Overall, I really like many things about this sock. I will not be knitting the mate to this one, because I am a gal who likes some negative ease in her socks and these do not have negative ease. The fit, but not the snug kind of fit I prefer. So I will be reknitting this pattern in the smaller size . . . we shall see, maybe a modified in between version of the two. I love the stitch pattern though and it's really easy once you get it in your head.
Planned mods for future pair : small size for a more snug fit, round toe for better fit, and Yarn Over Bind Off for a looser fit around my chubby little calves!
I do recommend this sock, it is a lovely design. Plus, and I didn't expect to get this out of this sock, I really like this toe up heel. It is the best fitting toe up heel I have done so far. Those short row heels never fit my heel correctly.
