I'll be interested to hear how the GS heel wears. What about that toe? It looks different.

Its the same toe as on my first (ever!) pair of socks, to Ann Budds recipe in The Knitters Handy Book. Despite it being Ann Budds, I dont see it very often, as it happens. Instead of grafting *across* the opening, you work the toe decreases down until there are 4 sts on each side, then graft them together vertically as it were, since because of the decreases that is the way those 8 sts are lying. Easier to do than to explain! It makes a kind of squat half-cylinder shape for the toes.
