I may now become a fan of toe-up socks. My issue was doing increases. I always seem to get holes in increases. Now that I figured out how to make increases without the holes. I may make toe-up socks more often.
Because I did not have a full skein of sock yarn, I had to go toe-up. I also did short-rows using wrap and turn method for the first time. I am not a fan of the wrap and turn method. I guess it did not help using black, because the stitches were hard to see. I think I will stick to alternate methods when it come short-rows.
