I made these for my husband for his birthday (yesterday). It was tough hiding the WIP from him in our little one bedroom! He absolutely loves them though. He's seriously commented on how nice they feel 10 times today. It's great to be appreciated :D

Cool socks. I love the yarn--green is my favorite. Looks like you got a nice fit. The toe looks very smooth. I was wondering which direction they were made--cuff down, or toe up?

I found a great "recipe" for toe-up socks on Ravelry that is SUPER easy to do. Lifestyle Toe Up Socks - No Swatch Needed by Charisa Martin Cairn. <3 <3 <3 that pattern. Also, I did two at a time, magic loop. It was a little confusing at first as these are only my second pair of socks, but once I got in a rhythm it was easy!

An appreciative DH like yours deserves these great socks! So nice they are so colorful...not the usual boring man-colors!

I love them! Perfect yarn. What kind is it? It looks a little like Koigu.

It's from a seller I found on eBay called Over The Rainbow, the yarn is called Twinkletoes. The colorway is Leprechaun.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone! Hubby is still raving over the socks :aww:
