Hi James!
As you can see, there are several male knitters in our forum. In fact, one of our moderators is a man! Welcome.

Hi Lisa!
The toe grafting is called "kitchener stitch"
You can see several websites about how to do it here:

When you finish binding off all the stitches, leave a long tail of yarn and cut it. Then just pull the tail to tighten it, and weave in the long tail through the back of your work with a yarn needle. Good luck!
You'll see an illustrated guide here on this webpage. Just scroll down the page to see "Binding Off".
