Here are some great hiking sox

I should really call these "Two-fers" as they were done two-socks-two-circs in a 2x2 rib for all but the sole and the heel and used the better part of two skeins of yarn. The heel is a short-row heel which is so very elegant and I love knitting toe-up as you can make the legs as long (or short) as your yarns allows -- I could have made these much longer, but a 7-inch leg is my comfort-one.

These will be perfect for hiking the mountains around here -- especially as they're done in Lion Brand's Lion Wool which even in the summer is a good choice for hearty socks!
