My friend likes to knit on circular needles BUT has issues with toes on socks. Knitting from the toe up means you can use more of your yarn, as you knit the leg until you have used half of it (weigh whats left on the kitchen scales). You can also try them on as you go along. I designed a toe and used a heel she could do on straight needles.
She loved them, found them very easy and suggested I put this online as she has not seen a similar pattern.
Socks should be knitted about a 1/2" smaller than actual foot size to give a snug fit.

I have been a crafter for many years and have really enjoyed learning every form of knitting, crochet, tatting and macrame I could find. Generally my crafts were presents, thankfully wanted and admired.
I became disabled some years ago and, after a rather hard time, have now pretty much settled into my new life. I have time on my hands and started crafting for something to do instead of just presents. There is always so much to learn and keeping active is good for me.
I have shops on Etsy and Folksy as Eclectic Yarncrafts and sell yarn at http://eclecticyarncrafts.yarnshopping.com/ . I have been given a number of commissions as well, which all helps to fill my time.
I like to encourage people especially young people to take up yarn crafts as they are very rewarding and helps you learn new skills.
