Third time is the charm

Last time I posted, I made note of stitch counts and whatnot for a pair of custom fitted knee socks.  Two failed attempts (and several consolation/"quick" gratification ankle socks) later, and I think I may have it!

I snapped the pic in my jammies shorts, as I am now in work jeans and about to put on my old basic training combat boots to go out and give these socks the real stress test: a morning of yard work.  I am wondering if I used too much lace (which has more stretchiness than solid fabric and definitely more stretch than cables) for them to stay up on their own when subjected to heat, humidity, and activity ... so yard work in August is the ultimate test for that.

Enough procrastination.  It is not raining at present, so I better go make the best of it.
