These are done toe-up, but I think I prefer the traditional way. I like to do the heels, everything else is boring, LOL. I want to make some anklets now so I can wear them in the summer.

I saw a book at B&N that was 2 at a time toe up socks. Seemed interesting. What's the difference between toe up and cuff down?

I don't like toe up because it's harder for me to judge when to start the heel. I am better at figuring out when to start the toes. That's the only major difference. I tried 2-at-a-time once and it was quite amusing. I just had a big tangled mess but it works well for people who are smart enough to figure it out, lol.

Yeah, that actually makes sense to me, going cuff down now that you say that.

I think doing two at a time would confuse me as well.

I've never tried socks. Seems like they'd be super hard. ><
All I can to ATM are scarves, blankets, hats, mittens, stuffed animals, and small accessories. :<
Anyone have any projects going on right now? I'm currently in the process of crocheting a baby blanket out of granny squares for my bf's professor's new baby. :D

I can do simple ones. Nothing special or fancy. Just a basic circle inside a square.
