I enjoy knitting socks, but I don’t enjoy wearing hand-knit socks. Why? Because of the toes. I don’t like those pointy V toes! I’m not talking about how you finish the toes (kitchener, or 3-needle bind off, or pull the yarn through the remaining loops), I’m talking about the toe decreases on the sides that end up making the toe pointed no matter how you finish it off.
I don’t like the way it looks and I really don’t like the way it feels. I don’t have V-shaped toes and I don’t know of anyone else who has V-shaped toes, so I don’t want to knit V-shaped socks.
Do I have any other options? I have several sock books but I don’t see anything else I can do. (BTW - have you ever noticed that the socks are photographed from the side so it looks like the toes are nice and rounded?)
I haven’t tried a toe-up pattern, is that any better? I’ve heard that toe-up patterns are harder to find. Please help, because I’m very discouraged right now.
