Toe-Up Socks!
Okay, I know there are people other than Angelia and me that are afraid of toe-up and socks and want to try them anyway.
Has anyone found a pattern with a decent diagram of the frighting cast-on?

There is this (have not tried yet):

last night I tried the Turkish cast on (because I'm making a handbag) - the method was in Vogue Fall 2005 and it looks like it'll make a great toe too. It might be one of the methods above in Knitty, but I haven't read thru it well enough - I just found it. Ah, here ya go - Turkish Cast On:

let me know here if you find anything else

I would like to do this. I have the yarn now, but I will have to wait till I come back from vacation.

humblestumble 01-14-2006 01:59 AM has a good toe up pattern, the cast on doesn't intimidate me, and it's easy and SO cool once you have the hang of it

Ooh, I may have to try this. I am not a sock person, but I have some sock yarn that I have a strange urge to use.

That Turkish cast on and the explanations of the figure 8 look so much easier than what I was trying to do over the Christmas break :rollseyes: I've got loads of sock yarn and would love to do toe up socks...actually my LYS is doing a toe up sock class I think...

mmmm...well the Turkish cast on worked wonderfully, altho my purse is turning out smaller than I wanted, but time constraints and laziness are making me not care. ;) I did it in the car, no problem.

Definitely going into my permanent brain cells for future reference.

Are you a sock puppet?

I wanna make socks!! I have the yarn, but don't have time yet...

I started a sock! I'm using this pattern:

I'm using a different gauge though, so I hope I can figure it out!

I'm planning to use this pattern:
I'm going to get needles today and I already have my wonderful RIT brown and orange yarn. :twisted:
Mer, I was looking at directions for that toe on knitty and it made my head hurt. :shock: I can't wait to see your toe done! :cheering:
