Basically, I wanna knit a pair of socks or two that'll hide underneath my shoes. Of course the only non-dunlop-volleys I own leave the top of my feet exposed.

So, anyone know of a pattern for sockettes?

^ The second one is a better picture.

I just want it to cover my toes and about an inch around my foot.

I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to modify a toe-up sock pattern.

This isn't quite the same, but I think knitty's ballet slipper pattern could be easily modified to work.

I think that knitty pattern would work great, as long as you could do it in a smaller gauge.  Would you be comfortable say, doubling the number of stitches with a lighter weight yarn and smaller needles?  You'd probably have to play around with it.  Knitty's pattern looks like the right shape, just probably too thick to fit inside shoes, since they're supposed to be worn as slippers...

Good luck!!

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

Here is one, it's more of a tutorial than an actual pattern, though:
