Cate, I just followed the directions in the pattern I linked to, and it worked pretty well. I misunderstood it at first, but if you have done short-rows before, that's all it is.

My pattern has a figure eight cast on..After three tries, it's still not working for me. :rollseyes: I don't think I've ever done short rows.
I think I'm going to cheat and try the "easy toe" I found on knitty. It'll look the same as the figure eight.
Progress pictures? :D

FANTASTIC!

I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of the short row cast on, so the Easy Toe (which is also described in the Sensational knitted Socks book) looks like a GREAT alternative.

Will have to give them a go when I do some toe up socks for DH.. :D

Lucia's Sockulator II
I started a pair of Toe Up socks two weeks ago. I used Lucia's Sockulator II (her blog is found here http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/ and you find the pattern generator under one of the menues)

The great thing about this Sockulator is that you take your own measurements, insert the numbers and get a pattern calculated for you. It has clear instructions and links to tutorials (or articles as she calls them) for help.

I've made one and a half sock now. Hope to have the second one finished this weekend!

I am just starting to work on the Knit Picks Toe Up two socks at once http://www.knitpicks.com/projects/it...play_yarn.aspx
Which honestly looks fairly simple.
I'll update y'all about how it's going.

I finished one sock! I have to recommend that you bind off very very loosely for toe-up socks!!!! I had to re-do my bind-off 3 times before I could get it on my foot. It actually ended up a little loose on the foot part, but otherwise fits fine! I'll try to post a pic tomorrow. :D

Yay, Mer! I can't wait for pictures!
I frogged my cast on like four times and had to take a break from it. :rollseyes: A girl in a couple of my classes told me if I couldn't get it, she could help me. She even asked me if my yarn was from Knit Picks!

Here's sock number one! I wish my feet weren't so big--it seemed like it took a long time. :rollseyes: Any one else done any toe-ups yet?
