After the heel turn, I'm starting to worry that it is going to be too big. I went along with the largest size in my book because I wasn't sure what measurements would correlate with a size 9. My feet size are anywhere from a 7 1/2 to 9 so I didn't want to go by my feet and then have them turn out too small.
After the heel turn, I ran into a speed-bump when I came to the toe.
The second pair worked up much faster now that I had all the hiccups worked out.
I'm also happy to report that this sock has been coming along a lot smoother and more intuitive than my first pair. Socks-made-from-memory, here I come :)
