I've "finished" one of the KAL socks, but I may frog the ribbing so that I can add more height. It just isn't quite as tall as it should be. I'll decide when I get to the top of the second sock... I put just as many repeats in the leg as there were in the instep (before the heel). That's how I always did Top-Down socks. It doesn't seem to work for toe-up. Maybe the heel takes more length. Hmmm...
