A few more modifications

So, I don't have time to post a picture right now, but I will soon. I finished the 11 CC tiers on the leg portion of the sock, but when I tried it on, the last 2 tiers were so tight that I could barely pull the socks over the upper part of my calf muscle. So, I took those two tiers out and I am going to increase them to be 8 stitch tiers. I will try the sock on again, but from trying it on this morning, I think I am going to put 12 or 13 CC tiers (so 1 or 2 more than the pattern calls for) on the leg portion because I want them to go all the way to my knee.
I got gauge with this yarn, but I guess it must not be as stretchy as the koigu. The only modifications I have made so far were to add an extra CC tier to the foot portion so that it would fit. I can get the socks on but they are really tight and I've got to be careful pulling them off. I thought about adjusting it so that they were bigger, but I kind of like the tightness to them because they keep the shape of my leg, thus looking much sexier than if they were bulkier, so I guess it's worth them being a pain in the ass to get on and off.
I am meeting some people at a coffee shop this afternoon to work on these, so I will post a pic when I get back.
