No-Purl Monkeys finally done!

Feast your eyes.  Here they are in all their variegated glory.  No, I don't know what kind of yarn it is, just that it is soft and lovely.  A little darker than I have been buying lately, but love it anyway.  

Who are they for?  Why me, of course.  I have discovered the joy of making things por moi.

They are toe-up ('cause I just love the toe-up thing, makes the socks go easier), short row toe and heel ('cause I love the short row thing, too), and the bind-off was this super elastic thing I found in one of my sock books (m-1 every other stitch).  Now they fit over my heels, and stay up just fine :-)  
Finished them off during the NCIS marathon.  Super easy (I say that after ripping back two rows with fingering wt yarn and size 1 needles, twice per sock!!!!!!).  
Now that I know I need a little looser bind-off, I will definitely make them again.
