I finished the first of the "arrows" socks (named for the lace patterning on the sides of the leg)
the 4-star toe was a success, in that it is comfortable, and needs no sewing up - yippee!, however, as a design device with this particular yarn, it was a disappointment.
I will use the star toe again, when I am working with a plain yarn (and of course, to finish Holly's second arrows sock) but not with patterned or striped yarn.
These socks are longer than I usually knit, I started with my plain vanilla sock pattern and knitted 30 extra rows prior to leg shaping, I am really happy with the heel and gusset - no holes!
