Toe up socks, one more time.

The competitive part of me won't let the toe up sock nightmare go. It looks like im forced to try again. This time though, I've promised myself to really read the short rows section for the heel again and again. It was such a nightmare the first time that I've blotted out the attempt. Even though its foggy I think I ran into a snag when it came to picking up the wraps.
Wish me luck.

I wholeheartedly agree with

I wholeheartedly agree with Andy on using the bigger yarn and needles to get used to what you need to do. That is the way I teach beginning socks and whenever someone wants to learn a new technique. Lots of luck.

Andy has a good suggestion. I

Andy has a good suggestion. I have often made the suggestion of baby socks as a test bed. You have to go through all the same steps only with a fewer stitches. Once finished they can always be gifts or donated or frogged to reuse the yarn.

Good luck and take your time,

Good luck and take your time, make sure nobody disturbs you. You can practice with bigger yarn and bigger neddles, just that section, so that you can see what it is you are suppose to do. I will pick up some acrylic and big needles and practice .
