I love how the colours are coming out. the pinks are not pooling at all and they look almost like a semi solid colourway although you can see the big differences in colour when the yarn is still in the skein.
The stitch pattern is coming out nicely too. I like the amount of stretch the sock has. That is particularly useful, I think, when knitting for someone else. I also learnt a new heel method! I have no idea how well it wears. The heel flap for this pattern is ribbed. I normally knit a slip stitch heel which wears like iron, so I am hoping that this heel will wear just as well.
