I'm working on a new sock pattern using the natural dye skein. This will be toe up with the pattern on the leg. I find that the heel flap and gusset fit the best so that will be the heel pattern. The pattern on the leg of the sock is a 16 round repeat that seems to make the knitting go faster than plain stockinette. I always defaulted to a plain sock thinking it was the fastest. A patterned sock keeps our interest a bit better maybe that's why it seems a quicker knit.
When completed, this pattern will be released for free on Ravelry.
Happy crafting and have a great day,
