Knitting Toe-Up Socks

I am finally finishing my first pair of toe-up socks.  I am really liking the figure 8 cast on and the seamed bind off.  I think I may be a new sock addict!  This pair is for Dad for Christmas.  One of the things I will always remember about him (besides knowing every book he had read by the blue-edged pages from the chalk at the lumber mill he worked at) is that he loves red socks.  I remember the lint and fuzz that used to be all over everything else in the wash because of those socks.  It's hard to find red socks now for men so I thought it would be fun to make him some red socks.  Besides, I think he would appreciate socks more than me chalking up his books now!

Off-topic but a rant I need to get out of my system .... Did anyone out there know that the remote entry button of the car does not work when the car is running?  I locked myself out last week because I locked the car with it running to warm up to keep someone from taking it for a joyride then couldn't get back in.  Thank goodness I have the right coverage with my insurance.  $45 for the tow-truck guy to unlock my door.  Crazy!  They should consider that some of us live in Montana and it gets cold here.  I hate to leave it unlocked so I can warm it up in cold -20 degree weather!
