My first pair of toe up socks; first pair of sport weight yarn socks. Used Cider Moon's Campfire pattern over 48 stitches. I used the Magic cast-on from Knitty.com, though I ditched the slip knot. Worked the heel using the short row with yarn over technique from Priscilla Gibson Roberts. Gauge 6.5 stitches and 9 rows/inch. Yarn is soft, washes well and socks are warm.
