I knit these with Knit Picks Memories yarn, the colorway is Fly Fishing. I used theUniversal toe-up sock formula (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTuniversalsock.html). I used a one by one ribbing and the sewn bind off technique that Silver shows on her sock tutorial. I love that bind off!
My son loves them, so that makes me happy! Next up is a pink pair for my daughter!

Great socks! I want to do toe-up next. Was it hard?

Those are just the perfect color for a boy! I love doing toe up...much easier to get a better fit!

Thanks, everyone! No, toe up isn't hard, and I much prefer it. For some reason, it feels like the socks knit up much quicker to me. :hug:
