With Dave’s socks done, I needed another pair on the needles (I must always have at least one pair of socks on the go – it’s knitting law).
A while back, Sam had commissioned me to make a pair of man socks for a good friend of hers. Sam can knit, but she’s not that fond of making socks (one sock she can do, it’s the second one that’s the challenge). She’s definitely not willing to attempt a pair of man socks.
The friend had requested royal purple and crimson red for his man socks (I like a man who likes colour in his socks!), so I dyed up some custom Alley Cat.
Nothing fancy for the knitting – just a 2-2 garter rib. This way the yarn can really shine. The foot will be plain, but I’ve still got a bit to go until I get there!
