Here they are on my feet. I'm coming to the conclusion that ribbed patterns are the only thing that stays up on my legs. Everything else slouches down, no matter how much negative ease.
The other thing I'd been meaning to do for a while is practice my colorwork. These are Crystal Socklets from knitty, made out of bunches of leftovers. They're still wet. Action shot to follow. Comment on the Crystal Heel: if you have a very slender, short heel, you may need more than .5" of negative ease. My heel doesn't quite fill out the Crystal heel. Or, as an alternative, you could leave out a couple of rows between decreases.
On the whole, these were fun. I know they're all socks, but... I'm also knitting sweaters! I know, me, sweaters. They're not socks, but I'm enjoying the experience anyway.
