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!
