Toe up Question

Did you ever see a sock pattern and fall in love with it wanting to knit it only to your disappointment it is a Cuff down pattern? You have vowed an oath to knit only toe up because it's the only way you seam to get a great fit. Knowing others have converted a cuff down to a toe up pattern, you attempt it. Sure this week at work was not challenging enough, so why not find something challenging this weekend. Am I nuts or what??? The pattern is the Ceilidh Socks Pattern from Wooly Wonka Fibers .First the pattern is written not only cuff down but the stitches have been redistributed on three needles. I have graphed out the pattern for two. I have no clue what to do with the heel, but I will most likely do the same heels that have done on other patterns. The edging is what is vexing me I am nowhere near the cuff, but it starts out with a picot edging. Anyone have any suggestions as to how to do this or alternatives? Am I making a mountain out of a molehill? Normally I find the longest most difficult way to do things, why I don't know I guess I am wired that way. This is the only photo of it I have so far. The yarn I am using is one of Wooly Boully's its called Field of Texas Sunflowers. It's a 50/50 blend of tecel and merino wool. Any of you that have an idea please leave a me a message.

I so wish I could help, but in spite of having knit some both ways, I'm so nowhere near knowing what I'm doing. That's gorgeous yarn!

LOL, I have this problem too. But mine is usually that that pattern is written for toe up and 2 circs...and I have no idea how to do that :-)

Hope someone can help!

sadly I cannot help, I am not good at toe-up's, but I wanted to say good luck and I love that fiber!
