Handspun BFL Sock

Handspun BFL Sock, originally uploaded by Buxtrosion.

My first toe-up sock. I've since turned the heel for the 3rd time, and may soon be ripping it out for the 3rd time. I think I need to add some more increases in the middle of the foot. The stitches on the instep still look a little stretched out. This fabric seems to have much less tolerance for being stretched and still looking nice than normal socks.
More info on techniques and resources after I actually get it worked out.

I have the same problem. Adding a few extra increases in the row immediately before starting the short rows helps a lot.
