Used Twisted German Cast On.

Rather than do my usual taat cast on, I cast on two separate needles and worked each one separately until finishing the 12 rows of cuff ribbing.

I had intended on using off-white for the heels and toes. Changed my mind, even though I DID think I’d still do the white toes … but when I got to them I decided to simply finish it all in one colour. Next time.

MODIFICATIONS: Did 3 full pattern repeats instead of 2 1/2 on the leg, after the cuff.
Toes: Didn’t do her toes (they’re like the top of a beanie with a swirl of decreases) so instead did the K2tog at beginning and end of each needle (magic loop).

PATTERN: Love the end result; it’s a very pretty pattern. Also love the honeycomb heel.
I wouldn’t recommend this for a beginner to sock knitting. In a few places you need to have done socks before to know what to do next or what not to do … this occurs in a couple places in the pattern. A beginner might also find it confusing to keep track of the lace pattern plus where you are when turning the heel -- the rest of the lace pattern is quite straight forward (e.g.: leg and foot portion).

YARN: Loved the feel of working with this yarn; can hardly wait to wear it.
