The only thing I have done differently from the pattern is where to start on the gusset. The pattern calls for cutting the yarn after the heel flap and then picking up stitches on the right side of the heel. I decided to just pick up along the left so I didn't have to cut and rejoin. The only change.
Still have a bit of the foot left to knit and then it is on to the toe. It looks much different than my usual toe so I am excited to get to it. I love lace patterned socks. They always seem to knit up much faster than plain stockinette ones. Do you get that same feeling?
(Steph, I am loving your yarn!)
