I love this pattern on the heels. Not sure about the toe-ups, I guess that I just like the look and knitting of the toes with cuff down. We went camping over the weekend and I brought my knitting bag along. I know that I threw in my little zippy quilted bag with my scissors and darning needles in it. CAN'T find my zippy bag. Maybe it fell out in my husbands truck. And he is at work. So I just need to darn the hanging yarns on the second sock.
