It’s another week of FOs here at Chez Wandering Cat…. so buckle up!
As predicted, the rest of Dave’s pair of Christmas socks fell off the needle pretty quick.
Here’s a funny fact – Dave wears mostly black (and occasionally very dark grey), except when it comes to his socks. For some reason, he loves colourful socks. I’m definitely not complaining – I wouldn’t knit him nearly as many pairs if they had to be all black and grey.
These were a fun pair, but they are nothing fancy. I just let the yarn do the work. I didn’t even use a different yarn for heels and toes as I normally do with stripers. Last post, many of you asked about the yarn – it is Kroy. And you’re all correct – it wears wonderfully. Dave has many pairs of Kroy socks (mostly made by Mom on her sock machine) for just that reason!
And now, I’ve got to get back to Paisley’s cardigan, though I have to cast on another pair of socks. I hate not having a pair ready for travel knitting.

I love those socks – really nice! And, happy belated birthday!!! Those boots you got are really cute.
Nice Finish! I’m still working on some Christmas projects, too.
Im so happy your guy loves your efforts and wears your socks. Mine wont!!!! I actually took them back for me.
Whoo-hoo! The socks are done! I just know he’ll love them! My guy won’t wear colorful socks. All black, navy or gray. But Alex! He loves them. The more colorful the better so I really enjoy making his.
Great sock finish! I love the unexpected “pop” of a fun pair of socks when someone removes their shoes.
Those are wonderful socks! I love the way you did the heel. Of course, I think they would look perfect with jeans.
Cozy socks, LOVELY fabrics, adorable socks and love the new boots! But the cat nap, that is the best of all.
Those socks did trip merrily along! I am procrastinating about knitting a pair for Bill! lol
