Sukka-Finlandia 2019: Aave
The second pattern in the Sukka-Finlandia sock knitting competetion is Aave by Heidi Alander. While the pattern has both lace and cables, the back of the leg is plain stockinette, and the heel a bit more straight-forward than in Jean Next Door. It still took me longer to finish, but only because I was working on other things simultaneously. Due to my tight gauge, the socks turned out slightly more snug than I expected, but this will probably help keep them from turning sloppy. One thing I can't stand is loose socks!
