I have a new sock design in mind that will be called icarus, mainly because of the side wings that youcan see above. I plan this to be a sock that includes calf shaping within the pattern itself, so that the pattern sort of grows into the calf and doesn’t need inserts like so many other calf shapings have. At the back will be one cable that will also grow to help shape the calf and a little “olive crown”.
Right now I’m hesitating about the lace sections I want inbetween the wings and back cable, I waver between a lace cable (hole in the middle of the cable) or a simple “winding” lace built of k2tog and yo that alternate every other row.
