One of the mods I made to the pattern was to incorporate Cristi's double gusset heel decrease. I absolutely LOVE this decrease. It leaves the patterning on the top of the foot clean against the stockinette sole and gives a wonderful fit against the arch of the foot. I've said it before, but it bears repeating - this is GENIUS. If you haven't tried it yet, please do on your next sock.I messed up a wee bit by not following the pattern, and did a standard stockinette toe. I should've kept the reverse stockinette going. Next time.
The yarn I used was Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in colourway Loden. It is a thin sock yarn, with what I think is a pretty tight twist. It wasn't as soft as Socks That Rock to knit with, but it's made what looks to be a hard-wearing fabric. Time will tell.
Altogether this was an enjoyable knit. I really like mystery sock knit-a-longs. A clue each week is about the right amount of sock-knitting I want to do.
The pattern is still free, through 29th February, so if you haven't already, do rush over to Ravelry to download a copy.
