So far, so good. I skipped the increases in half the repeats on round 20 and the other half at round 40 to taper down the leg. Slid it on at that point (needles and all) with no problem, looked about 2/3 the length I wanted so I kept going through round 59 (not counting the initial ribbing). Directions said to start the heel after completing an odd round. I'm about four rows into the heel flap now, would love to keep going but I've got to get up early for work. Yarn ball's getting wonky so I'm gonna rewind it and head for bed.
