Prairie Cat Socks

I started this the other day on 2.5mm needles. I had most of the leg done when I realized it was just too snug. It's only 66 sts (multiples of 11 for the kitty cats).  I knit it again with 2.75mm needles and that solved the problem. 
The pattern calls for an afterthought heel but it is not my favourite - it's easy but a bit fiddly. Instead, I did a short row heel., starting it halfway along the 8 stocking stitch rows between kitty cat heads.
On the mate, I'm going to knit it reversing the colours.
BTW, this was just stash yarn - Kroy Socks 4-ply in Muslin and Glencheck colourways.
