My personal sock sensei, who makes almost exclusively socks (and only toe ups) does the exact thing that you mentioned- stop 2" before the stated length and start the heel. The only other thing that I might mention is the whole negative ease thing- she does 10%. But I bet you already did that- sorry if that sounded bossy, that was completely not my intention.

Sorry for the sniffles- there should be some law about getting sick in the summer.


Yep, you should be just fine stopping 2" before total length & then working the heel. It's what I do on various sizes and it's always worked.

Happy knitting!


You could also sneak email your pal and ask her to give you her measurement from heel bone to big toe to eliminate guess work.
