I'm loving my toe-up sock(s). I'm knitting Cookie A's Baudelaire as my first sock. I thought I might just start with something challenging and then everything will be easy. :)
The lace is a very easy 4 row repeat (good for the bus), and while I haven't hit the heel yet (too busy fighting Lima wool that does not want to be lace) - I don't think I could ever really be happy with cuff down socks.
But more later, with photos. :)
