5' 9" huh? I think you mean tall, I think that's what my feet measure. No, that's size 9.5. Still, no matter how you look at it I have big feet and I'm not as tall as you. Hand knitting lets me have socks fit as I want them to and that's a real treat! I bet you understand that.

You said you found the heel stressful, I wonder if a different style of heel would be less stressful for you. Or maybe you've practiced enough now that it won't be so stressful and learning a new style would be.
