Has anyone ever tried the magic cast-on for toe up socks? I found this article, using google:
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/FEATmagiccaston.html

I had to try it several times before it clicked, but I think I've got it, and I think I love it!:heart:

It took me a couple trys to get it started. But I like doing it too. Like the way it looks.
Was a lot easier to do on the 2nd pair.:lol:

It's similar to the Turkish cast on which I've used to make bags, I haven't made socks. It's great...

That looks pretty cool. I'll have to try it with my next pair of socks. I just cast on a pair with figure 8 cast on.

Wow, that looks pretty cool! I'll have to try that. I've been using a method that I found on a random tutorial website (through Google, of course). I'm not sure that it has a name, but this looks easier than whatever I've been doing. Thanks!!!!

Looks interesting. I'm going to be trying two toe up socks at the same time very soon and may have to try that.
