well, looks like i did find some time to knit tonight ... and they fit! for some reason, i am always surprised that my socks fit. i know they will fit in girth, but i feel like it's always a guessing game when to begin the toe.

for the toe, i usually decrease every other round until i've decreased half my stitches, then every round until about an inch (x stitches) remain across the toe. i figure i can always fudge it to cut the toe off sooner, but it doesn't quite work the other way around.

and, of course i'm itching to cast on for something new ...

which will it be ?

The tiger socks turned out great! Glad they fit so well. I have the same worries about where to start the toes.

That top purple yarn looks sooo pretty!

Cool Opal Tiger socks! Yay for fitting perfect!

I like that bottom righthand yarn. Looks scrummy.

I posted the graphs for you (under the original post).
Nice socks. By the way, I'm one of those people with crazy finger toes! And my husband too. My son was born with toes so long even I was impressed. ;^)
