I'm not sure what I think of this. I think it fits about right once I've got it *on*, but it's a struggle to get my heel through the leg.

Also, I think I may have made it a bit too long.

If I do decide I can live with the fight to get it on, I probably won't make a second one for months. See, I have a fair amount of stuff I actually want to finish soon, and I don't really need wool socks until September at the earliest.

Oh, and: if you were wondering what became of the pooling Lapis, it has become a plain sock:
