Hat Heel Sock -the assesment

As promised I decided to knit the Hat Heel Sock as part of my sub sneakerliner project playing with different sock constructions. Here's my thoughts on this one.
It looks really interesting in a self stripping yarn:

There are a lot of edges and picked up stitches in parts of my foot that don't need ridges, and it will be interesting to see how these wear.

They are quite skimpy, which is not the pattern's fault, I had only almost just enough yarn and I should have just done the toes in a different colour. Instead i just knit the ribbing really short. Despite this, they don't dissapear into my shoes, like lots of other socks do.


In an exciting ribbing development, I seem to have found a solution to my toe up cast off problem. after knitting the last round of 1x1 ribbing, I slipped the purl stitches to a separate needle and kitchenered them together. Simple and no ruffling. Now I jst need to work out how to do this on 2x2 rib...

In conclusion: Would I knit these again? Probably not. Although the Celtic Triad sock, which has the same construction looks fairly interesting too. And these would look amazing in two colours...
