Sweet Tomato Heel Socks

Has anyone tried socks using the brilliant Cat Bordhi's "Sweet Tomato Heel?" I bought the e-book last night and have done a heel-only to try the technique. I really like the smooth look as well as the ease of making it. There is no heel flap, there are no wraps to conceal, nor any stitches to pick up.

Sweater pattern

I am making a raglan, top-down sweater for my son and it's going very well. I am at the point where I will join the sleeves and continue with the body of the sweater. Right now, it's all just stockinette stitch, which is fine as my son likes things done simply. I thought, however, that I might add a bit of interest by adding some sort of a repeat.
