I must say I am lazy about the toes and heels. I've tried the star toe, and some other heel, but the regular old decrease and kitchener is so ingrained I just do it. Plus, it is comfortable for most people, I think.


One picture puzzles me; how did you get a decrease to make a hole and a lump? Did the pattern say to p2tog instead of k2tog?


Tamar, I'm guessing that you mean the close-up of the toe? It's more a *shadow* than a hole (!) -- yes, the pattern says P2tog, not K2tog, and closer to the point of the toe it is P3tog. It probably looks less accidental if you make the toe the full length as in Bush's pattern, but I had to shorten it for this gauge.
