Too Tight Socks

Apparently, I finished these socks in July of 2007 but I rarely wore them because they were too tight - not once I got them on - but getting the lace over my heel was a chore...
...before...
...I loved the lace pattern and the little fluted edge it produced....
...but I whacked them off above the ankle...
...rolled the yarn back into a ball and picked up the stitches - I increased 6 stitches for one more lace panel...
...and after...

...here are the re-finished socks with the new upside down top - notice that you lose the pretty fluted edge when you knit from the toe up - originally these were knit from the top down...

...and the super easy lace pattern:

Round 1: [Yo, k1, SK2P, k1, yo, k1] to end.
Round 2: K all sts.
