I *love* these socks. They were fun to knit and the pattern was pretty easy to follow. And although the funky coloring makes the lacy pattern tough to see, they still look pretty killer. My only problem with the socks, is that I tried knitting the gusset in two different ways. While they both ended up the same size/fit, the problem is that the size/fit is smaller than my foot. On both socks the heel finds itself about 1/2″ forward of my own heel. I’m not sure if it’s something I did in interpreting the pattern wrong or what exactly it is I could have done. Maybe it’s something that blocking can help fix? The socks themselves are not uncomfortable to wear, so it’s not a huge problem.
Last night I went to Wal-Mart to find a pretty ribbon to thread through the tops of my socks, but wasn’t impressed by anything there. Later this week I will hit up the fabric store and see if they have anything. If not, I’ll just wait to decorate my socks. But today I will block them and wear them later this week! Maybe with my new shoes I bought….
