FO: Dad’s Birthday socks

Ok… so I admit it, part of the reason not much progress was made on the barnyard cardigan was because I’d much rather have been working on these….

… and as you can see, I worked on them so much, that they are now finished. As mentioned in my previous post, they are sport-weight. So even though they are giant man socks, the thicker yarn helped them knit up really fast.

Nothing fancy for the design, just a simple 3-1 rib. When I picked out the yarn from the stash, I wasn’t really thinking about how fall-ish the colour was – I just wanted something manly. But when I took them outside for pictures, I realized how perfect they were for the season.

Especially when you add a few fallen leaves!

  1. Those are great looking socks and sometimes you need to knit what YOU want to knit…not what you should be knitting. 🙂
    I’m on Piper’s fourth and last sweater of this bunch. It’s a red one and I’m sure I’m going to be playing yarn chicken before it’s done. Then I’m going to try my hand at knitting my first pair of worsted weight socks to use as slippers here in the RV. My feet are always cold and it’s supposed to be 11F by Saturday and Sunday. Not that the socks will be done by then. Probably not even started. I’ve always used sock yarn for socks so I’m not sure how these will turn out but it will be a change of pace.

    Those socks turned out great! What a wonderful birthday gift for your Dad. I bet the barnyard sweater will be one of the next completed projects.

    They are perfect!! I love those speckles. I was watching someone dye some yarn on YouTube the other day. I had no idea how you did that. I do now.
