I finished these up about a week ago. They were originally intended for me, but I got lazy when knitting the foot and made it too short to fit my size 11 foot. Hence, Tracy ended up with another pair as he has a much smaller foot. They fit him perfectly and he really liked the colorway. I think they'd go great with jeans! I got the yarn from Knit Picks. The yarn, called Felici, is a self-striping 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon priced at $5.29 per 50 gram ball (I used 2 skeins). They are incredibly soft and I would definitely order this yarn again! I used US size 2 double pointed bamboo needles and they were knit from the cuff down with a k1, sl1 (p on WS) heel and a short row turn. I hate doing the kitchener stitch and it never seems to look very good when I do it, so instead I turned the sock inside out and used a 3 needle bind off from the WS and was much happier with the result. My friend, Kim, who is also the owner of my LYS showed me how to do the Turkish cast on and knit the sock from the toe up using two circular needles, but I hated it! I prefer and am much more comfortable with my DP's! I'll just have to do them one at a time.
