I finished this sock and I am ready to decrease for the toe but I do not necessarly want a ktichner toe. I was hopeing to be able to do the toe that looks like it's knit from the big toe to the little toe. (at least that is the look of it.) It looks to be a stripe, one or two stitches wide from one side of the toe to the other. Does anyone know what I'm talking about, I've no idea what it is called?

I did another sock first n the toe looks like it was chewed off . . . not pretty. Don't ask Embarassed Rolling Eyes it's beyond ugly.

I've seen socks that are decreased like a hat is decreased, but I'm not sure how to do it so it looks like it's done from the big toe on down.

HERE (http://haveyouanywool.typepad.com/whisperlacesocks.pdf) is a pattern I found that has round toes...

And HERE (http://mary4169.tripod.com/id83.html) is another.

Hope some of this info can help you. I did not quite understand what you were asking, so looked for general info.

I'm thinking, I must have seen a machine made sock or a toe up sock n wanted to imitate the toe. I have searched n searched and can find nothing of the toe finish I was thinking of.
I'm going with the kitchner stitch. It's not the look I wanted but it will atleast put this poor sock out of it's misery n off of my needles so I can start it's mate. Will post picts of a pair soon. Thanks guys for the feedback.

Two socks, now visable on my blog, linked below this post. I used the yarn from jackieknits's stash swap. They made a pair nice cushy boot socks Very Happy.
Thanks again Jackie. The yarn held up well during my many frogging and re-knittings.

And a h u g e thanks to everyone who put up with me during the 'birth' of these socks. You all have the patience of Job. Thanks Cool Very Happy

Dare I ask if you'll try another pair?

Thank you all for your support Very Happy You guys have no idea how much it means to have a place to go, where me n my obsession are understood. Most folks just roll thier eyes back or walk away when I start talking knitting. Here you laugh with me and bemoan my failures n laud my successes. That means sooo very much Very Happy .

Kathryn, I will try another pair but I have a rather specific idea that I want to work out before I cast on. As soon as I have it right in my head (it may take a bit), I'll get those needles clicking.

My next pair is finished, photographed and published in my blog below.

There is also a bit about my rainbow snood, not sock talk . . . but it is another new post about a finished project.
