It’s not the best picture, (my man-sized sock blockers seem to have taken a walk, and I was in a hurry, so I just snapped a pic with my cell phone), but I am happy to report that Dad’s heavy man-socks are done! These will be tucked away for Father’s day, when it’s too warm to wear them, but he’ll be happy to receive them anyway.
To recap, the main, stripey yarn, is West Yorkshire Spinners DK in “Wood Pigeon”. It’s not super soft, but it’s nice to knit and it does wear well. The blue on heels and toes was some leftover Fat Cat I had kicking around in the stash. I think the colour was Blue Steel, or maybe Cloudy… I can’t remember.
And now… time to cast on a new pair of socks….
