Way cool and well done. They're pretty.

I have knitted Top-Down socks but actually found that Toe-Up being easier (so far anyway). I'm wondering if anyone of you find it the same.

I've only done toe up. It works so well for me I've not bothered to try top down. I'm sure others have done both and can tell you what they think.

Very cute indeed! And I love the purity of white!!

Beautiful socks. They look lovely and comfy in the lace pattern which really stands out in white. Well done!

They look absolutely great. I have now knitted a bazillion socks and never once did a toe up. They really are beautiful.

In what way(s) do you find toe up easier? I don't like Kitchener stitching but have found it's possible to do top-down and not do grafting. I'm not sure fitting them would be as easy, top down

I wish I could do toe up, for yarn use reasons but...I simply find it way too fiddly.

What part do you find too fiddly? The cast on?
