Questions to sock knitters

1. Is it enough to give you a stitch pattern and tell you to use your favourite heel and gusset (this is how I knit socks) or should I write my favourite heel/gusset into the pattern and/or provide alternatives?

2. What heel/gusset do you prefer for your toe-up socks?

3. Do you prefer a pattern to tell you exactly what to do and how to do it or a pattern that lets you use your own interpretation/variations?
