Trekking XXL Sock- FO

Pattern: generic sock pattern (see below for deets)
Yarn: Trekking XXL in Color 132
Yardage: 100g/460yds. One ball had enough for 3 socks (I only made 2)
Needles: Crystal Palace bamboo US size 1 DPN's (I lurrrrvvvvee these needles!)

I love Trekking yarn, especially after the first wash. They get sooooo much softer. For these socks I cast on 60 stitches, did an inch or so of 2x1 rib before changing to stockinette, and used a french heel and the commonly-used toe for which I cannot remember the name (I think I decreased to 24 sts and then grafted the toe together). Wheeeee!
