Recipe for a plainish toe up sock

I do not like to knit plain vanilla socks. So this is as vanilla as it gets for me.

The patterning is a simple, but gratifying faux rib pattern that gives a pleasing and quickly knit sock.

This is not a whole sock pattern, but rather a recipe to be supplemented with your favourite toe and heel. I prefer using short-row toe and heel constructions. A fabulous one can be bought on Ravelry for US $ 1.00 from the Sox Therapist:

This is a recipe for making socks which requires some knowledge on sock construction and your preferred sizing.
Some hints on sizing are given, based on my gauge and sock size.
