on the needles toe up socks

 I'm trying toe up socks. They are both from skeins of yarn with the same dye lot even though they don't look it. One I am pulling from the inside the other I couldn't find the inside end so I'm unwinding from the outside of that ball.  My gradation of color will be opposite.  Good thing they aren't for Mr. Monk he would have a hard time with socks that are not symmetrical. Ready to turn the heel and watching lots of  u tube videos. Any advice on the heel would be welcome and greatly appreciated. ~~Ann~~ P.S.  One year ago today I started my blog. Happy Blog Day to  me! See what else is on the needles at Patchwork Times.

HAPPY BLOGDAY TO YOU...........
The yarn is gorgeous. I still need to to a pair from toe up. Did find a different pattern to try for next time. I gave up this month.
I love that they aren't symmetrical. Isn't you tube the greatest resource!

Yours look great.

I haven't tried toe-up socks yet. I think it will be on my list for things to do next year. Good luck with the heel.
Lovely yarn.

Two toe up at once is very impressive! I get hung up on the cast on and then have trouble rememebering which sock I did what to.... Love that yarn color; what is it? Found you through Judy L.
