i wasn't sure if i could just use silver's exact pattern since she's using a much thicker yarn than i am, and i wasn't sure how much to increase the numbers in order to get a normal sized sock. but i DO want to use her general idea, i just need to figure out how many stitches to do in each part of the sock.
i found another toe up pattern on knitty, http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATTbacktobasics.html
that seems like it might fit the bill?
thanks for the advice!
