Vanilla toe-up socks - the beginning of my sock journey!

I did it! I made a pair of socks I like!

This is my second ever pair of socks (incidentally with the same yarn).  The first pair were baggy and unfortunate.  So I was determined to make these ones good!  I decided to go with a very simple toe-up sock pattern so that I would be sure to not run out of yarn.
I learned a lot of new methods here - firstly a figure 8 cast on which was super fiddly the first couple of times!  But now I love it for toe-up socks!
I also incorporated the Fish-Lips-Kiss heel, which everyone has been talking about recently.  I'm converted!  What a great heel.  The pattern is extremely chatty and it's a bit hard to get to the actual pattern, but it's very straightforward, and only $1!
My only complaint is that the toe shape is a bit weird for my foot.  My big toe is much longer than the rest of my toes so my foot is basically straight on the inside but sloped on the outside (does that make sense?).  The trapezoidal shape of the sock makes bagging over my little toes.  So I'm developing my own anatomically correct sock toes which I'll post about next time!
Apart from that I'm very happy with my socks!  They're beautifully warm and just rad!
