Scales Skin Socks

This is the current SixSockKAL sock. I showed a picture of it the other day. It's coming along nicely. I chose to cast on 60 stitches and I think I should have cast on a few more. It's not tight through the leg, but it is tight over my heel. I normally decrease every round of the gusset instead of every other round to keep my socks from getting baggy in the ankle so I'm use to them going on a little snug but this is really snug. And I've decreased every other round this time. It's not impossible to get on so I definitely won't be frogging. Especially after knitting 7" of leg. The yarn is Country Sock by Filatura Lanarota in color 16. It is 45% cotton, 40% superwash wool, and 15% nylon and it is quite nice to work with. I'm also thinking that since cotton tends to stretch it will be better that it's a little more snug. I'm hoping anyway.
