Dad’s Father’s Day socks are done. They are pretty much the same as I made before (which Mom accidentally felted), except the heels and toes on this pair are charcoal instead of white).
The yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Country Birds Prints in BFL (DK weight). It’s a lovely yarn – very soft, and nice to knit with. The only downside is that it’s not superwash (hence the accidental felting). But, as long as you know that, they aren’t that hard to take care of, and so far, all his other pairs are wearing quite nicely.
This particular colourway is Bullfinch, and I love that pop of red with the two shades of grey.
In addition to these socks, I’ve ordered him some solar lights for his garden. They should arrive any day now, so I’m all set for Father’s Day.
Now onto some socks for Dave’s birthday!
