FO - Toe up bed socks
My Knit Night friend combined some of Cat Bordhi techniques with her own and a bunch of us worked on the pattern together. I used YO for the gusset increases along with plain stockinette. Some of the others chose to use m1 increases with ribbing. I like the technique!

These are made from worsted weight James C. Brett Marble color- moss. It's a nice soft acrylic that is a good alternative for those of us who can't use Noro. Not the best for socks, but they are pretty.

They are beautiful!! My first thought was that the yarn had a look of Noro! Great job!

Your yarn made a nice pair of socks. I've never seen shaping like that in the front where you did the YOs. It makes an interesting effect. I like them.
