I love everything about this sock. I was worried that the pattern would be distractingly complex since it is over so many rounds, but I just popped 4 st markers in to designate increases and decreases and boom, easy as pie. Love knitting it and am loving the end result!

All finished and I have a slight oops - I should have increased needle size for the leg portion - the center bits of the wave where there are two increases very close together have much less stretch than the rest of the sock. I will need to have the leg pushed down when I wear these so they are comfy and don’t look weird. Maybe blocking will help out a bit with it too.
