    Although I appreciate Cookie A.’s recommendations for knitting a sock cuff-down, I’m really a toe-up girl. In my most recent sock experiment, I started at the cuff and found that my in-the-round gauge swatch was completely off. I’m really glad I started at the cuff, but with that information on hand, I knew I could start at the toe if I wanted and have the cuff come out the right width.

    I do mostly cuff down but would like some pointers on toe up socks. Thanks for the great podcast!

    I prefer toe up, that way I can knit until I run out of yarn if I want the cuff longer (or if I don’t think I’ll have enough for a tall cuff they can end up being short socks).

    I prefer to knit toe up.
