I think so, yes ( I haven't gotten past that yet..)

I thought that might be it. Here's one that I want to try except I don't like W&T. I'll have to give it a go to see if I can use German short rows. The toe starts out with 1/2 the total stitches on a provisional cast on, is shaped with short rows, then the live stitches from the provisional cast on are put otn and knitting in the round begins. I'd use the provisional cast on method that uses a hook to put the stitches on the needle; it seems much less fiddly to me and I've never tried the one she uses in the previous video.

Your socks came out great! I'm strictly a toe-up girl. But I recently switched to the free-sole technique (but I still do them toe up), in which you make a toe band, knit the instep on to that, then knit the sole (by picking up sts on the band). I still honing my technique, but the idea of it is to have a sole that's easy to replace when it gets worn out.

I may have possibly tried every conceivable technique before settling on toe-up, two at a time, side-by-side on one long circ. (front, front; flip; back, back)

Awww...those are precious! Watch out! Sock knitting is very addictive!! I've knit over twenty pairs in my six years of knitting, and I have enough sock yarn to knit at least fifteen or more pairs!

GREAT job!
