Anyone know where I can find a good (and hopefully simple) pattern for toe socks? I've bought a few pair and adore them, so I'd love to make some.

Here's a couple to get you started:
Http://www.elann.com Sock it to me toe-up
http://www.hellchick.net [b]Toe-up socks
http://www.wiseneedle.com Simple Toe up socks in four sizes

Elfine's socks by Anna Bell

If you have never done the toe up, do some research on best short row technique. I had trouble with the short/long row developing holes. I'm sure that with the right technique & expereince the heel will come out fine.

I used the turkish cast on http://fluffyknitterdeb.blogspot.com A little awkward at first but with a little practive it creates a beautiful smooth, tight toe. some use the figure 8 cast on--and like it as well (I haven't tried that one).

good luck,
knitbebe

Hmm, toe up isn't quite what I meant, I mean the socks that have little places for each toe. Like gloves for your feet, hehe. I wonder if I can find some to show... Ahh, here we go.

Spun magazine has a pattern for the ones that have a separate big toe (not all 5)...

Here's a free "toe socks" pattern. You have to sign up for the free membership first, though.

I'm going to get this book from library, it looks good and the reviews online are good. :) I hope they get it soon (having to request it) *crosses fingers*
