Well, I've sucessfully completed about half of my toe-up sock. My view point on it up to this point would be:
1) the short-row toe, it doesn't look "clean" enough for me
2) having to pick up an extra stitch after working the short-rows
1) the short-row heel
2) how fast you get through the heel because you didn't have to work a heel flap and gussetts
So far, I have decided that my next sock may be knitted cuff-down with a short-row heel. I also may try the figure 8 cast on for toe-up before I completely rule out toe-up.
I'm headed to the kitchen to get some lunch, and then to the back room for some sewing. Have a wonderful weekend.
