Your socks look fabulous! I love that colorway.

I use this cast off from the girlfromauntie (scroll down to the end of the pattern):

It makes a nice, loose cast off with a slightly ruffled edge.
I have only made toe up socks with short row heels! It's a great way to use every bit of yarn! lol

I love your toe-up socks!!! I seem to rotate between toe-up and cuff-down, with no favorite between the two. But yes, my BO is always too tight. I'm working on a toe-up pair right now, and I'm going to try EZ sewn bind-off - there is a tutorial on Knitty, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/FEATsum06TT.html
scroll down, it's the last one on the page. :)

Your socks look great! I am a top down knitter as well. I have never tried the toe up, but would really like to try the top down 2 at a time.

Maybe try a tubular cast off? Not quite sure what you should use. LOL

The swap spinning looks very pretty. I can see little bits of the purple here and there. I bet it is really pretty in person.

Well, since I've only done one pair ;) I used the EZ sewn b/o and liked it! I love them!! Nice :) Yay for spinning SP's

Toe-up is my personal fave - yours look great!!

It was very interesting reading your impressions of the magical cast on and the whole toe-up-sock-knitting-thing - I haven't tried either of it yet, it seems I'm so stuck in my old ways ;( But you sure made me very curious now to at least give it a try! And, your socks turned out so very pretty, great job as usual!
