All right y'all

Here's my prototype. Do you like it?

I know the toe isn't exactly parallel to the arch shaping, but I like it anyway. It's the Pointed Toe from Knitting Vintage Socks, and I like it because it's a long toe with nice detailing and a snug fit. I think it was a good choice - of all the socks I've knitted, this one is the most comfortable one. I think, however, that I have a fit problem on my particular foot, where the last shaping decrease stretches a little. It doesn't bother me, but if you make these you may want to adjust.

So, does anyone want the pattern? It is a really complicated pattern to write...so...don't lie. :) Though I like the toe, I can see how it might does look weird. In person, it looks kind of on-purpose and by-accident at the same time. So if I write the pattern, the toe is going to be up to y'all to decide on yourself. In fact, I might just tell you how I did the shaping and let you put it into your own sock. Not sure yet!

I'd love to see a pattern for how you did this - but don't do it just for me (make sure I'm not the only one!)!!

Wow, that sock is so striking! The way things curve and flow around the foot, I could see how it would be comfy. If I only wore socks I'd ask for the pattern. :)

I think it looks pretty freakin' cool. I have the book though, so I will definitely look up the toe on my own. No need to write out a complicated pattern. But it is a very neat looking sock!

How lovely they are! I can probably figure it out on my own. I have all those Nancy Bush books, if that is where the idea came from; I can look it up. (I think I have PGR Simple Socks.) I will be sure to quiz you though if I run into troubles. If you want to do the pattern that is cool too, but really, don't do it for us, do it if you have time and desire. No slog required :-)
