Details: I planned to use size US 0 needles since this pattern required a larger cast on than I normally use, but I couldn't find them. So I used my 1s and thought "tightly" through mental gritted teeth while I worked.
I followed the pattern completely except I left a few more stitches at the toe for binding off. I don't know if it would make a difference, but these socks seemed to make a more pointed toe than I have. my feet seem almost straight across. The fit is perfect, so I'm thinking it was a good call.
The yarn was Let's Stay Home on the The Fawn & the Fox's Raven base. I think I've already mentioned that I was unsure about using a busier yarn for these, but I loved the results.
If you think mine were chock full of stuff knitter's like, check out all of the variegated, lengthened, striped, and modified pairs on the Ravelry thread.
