And here's the first one! I had to rip a fair bit, and redesign, and reknit, but all in all I'm quite pleased. If you notice the green yarn running through, that's a lifeline. I made these for someone else, and if I need to rip out and reknit the toe after he tries them on, I wanted to make it easy on myself to pick up the stitches.

I do think I'll publish this pattern. There's some innovative stuff happening on the sole, where the heel rejoins the foot. Of course it's all on the bottom where no one will see it! But at least *I* know I'm a genius.

Whaddya all think?
