On-Your-Toes Socks

Pattern: On-Your-Toes Socks by Ann Budd from IK Summer '07 issue
Yarn: Tofutsies - Partie colorway
Needles: US 2 Addi Turbo's Circular
Started: June 22, 2007
Finished: July 17, 2007
Notes: I had some serious trouble with the Middle-eastern wrap method of casting on. But found a super tutorial with detailed photos at the hello yarn blog. This made the whole thing much simpler to understand. Truth be told, I really like this method of casting on. I also like the shape of the toe this cast on creates. It seems to me to be less pointy and more round in shape, creating a very roomy toe. There was some concern when I first tried on just the toe, but once I got farther into the sock, things seem to hit my normal sizing and changing needles to adjust size was not necessary.
