no, I didn't. I had two-at-a-time toe-ups going on one long circular needle, and I wanted my top side to be cohesive with the rest of the top side. The ribbing is located on the bottom side only, and just at the highest part of the arch. It does squish in, just enough, even with the same size needles. In fact, I don't even change needles for the top ribbing. The resulting rib stretches enough to accommodate my calves, so long as I use a super-stretchy bind-off. From top to bottom, my socks are on the same size needle throughout.

Also, I know that you will get the hang of this heel quickly. You certainly have a handle on sock construction, far ahead of my own, in fact. In no time, you'll be whipping those socks out like a boss!
