So when does the sock fit?

I’ve just about finished the first of Clementine’s Baltic Socks, and really don’t know if I should rip the toe and do it again.  The sock feels firm – and I wouldn’t be concerned if it was stockingette, but will the lace pattern give that much?


I’ve tried (unsuccessfully) to photograph the underside of my foot – but at present there is about a 0.5cm gap between the two needles, and I think that once I kitchener it, it will be too tight.  I would like to actually wear these socks with shoes, so I don’t want them too big. Do I assume some stretch? The yarn is my hand dyed 75% wool 25% nylon.
