I decided to go ahead and start a sock with the spindlicity sock yarn. The toe is Mountain Colors Bearfoot in a hot pink color, and the handspun is yellow/chartreuse, so I'm calling these pink lemonade socks. Creative, eh?

I spun up a mini skein of the foxfiber mohair/wool, and I think it will work perfectly for sock heels. It's a bit itchy (it is part mohair, after all) but it seems like it will be hard wearing. I'm pretty sure it's a batt, not roving, so I decided to spin it long draw, pretty thin, and navajo-ply it. I just have to decide if I'm going to dye it or leave it white. Hmmm...

I found some amazing tutorials: one for a quilt pattern and one for house shoes. I wish I could have a month off to work these up!
