I've mentioned this yarn and the heel of this sock before. Both socks are now ready for public viewing. I used the pattern as written, apart from the toe. Instead of the suggested wedge-shaped toe, I substituted the Star Toe of Three Points from Knitting Vintage Socks.

Nice socks, pinkly tinged, the rainbow socks also before were very nice. Congrats.

These are lovely, and I so want to knit this pattern, but I'm trying very hard to work on the herd of lonely socks, and other UFOs. Was the yarn from the sock club?

Thanks! Yes, yarn was from Skein Queen Plushness Autumn 08 Sock Club, and very more-ish it is too.
