I've made some more progress on the Toe-Up sock. I got the gusset & the heel done, but I'm not too sure that I'm all that satisfied with it. My young daughter, who is a beginner knitter and who has not even attempted to knit socks yet thinks that the foot is too long. I'm not sure, but she does have a good eye for these sort of things.
So, I'm not sure if I should just continue and start working the leg or.....maybe I should frog back a few rounds and re-check the fit? This is a practice sock and I'm not all the certain that I'm going to proceed with making the second sock. I really dislike this yarn. I ordered it on-line through a craft catalog. It was cheap for a sock yarn. It's been kicking around in my stash for about 3 yrs., and I just keep using it for practice.
So, I'll play around with a little bit more, then I'll decide about Toe-Up socks. If I do like Toe-Up sock knitting, then I'll try it with a yarn that I do like!
I do need to get back to some other socks that need finishing.....after I get some house work done.
