The second toe-up sock was so much easier than the first! After ripping and re-knitting various sections of the first sock a number of times, I was almost afraid to start the second. However, since I had already decided upon the toe, heel and bind-off, the second sock was a breeze.
After having knit all my previous socks using a dutch heel, I was worried about the fit on a short row heel, but Maddie thought they were comfortable, and they look as if they fit nicely.
Heck, I may become a toe-up sock knitter yet!
