Socks for John

It's still too warm for wool here, but John has gotten plenty of use out of his hand knit socks on business trips to colder climates. I wasn't quite finished with this pair before he left on Sunday, so he'll be seeing them completely finished for the first time when he reads this post. Hope you like them, Honey!

Basic Short-Row Sock
Worked on 68 stitches
Needles: US 1 1/2 (2.5 mm)
Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot
Color: Granite Peak

  1. I love the warm colorway of the yarn. It's very manly. John is a blessed man to have hand knits for his feet!

  3. Woo Hoo!

    I've been the envy of all here in Wintergreen VA as the weather has been quite nippy the past two days.

    Never fear - I have my new hat, my green scarf, and I'm wearing my Red-Tailed Hawk socks.

    I can't wait to try out the new ones.

    I love the picture and the props.

    For those who are wondering, these are drift seeds I've been collecting and you can see more at http://beachbeans.blogspot.com

    Love you
    John

  5. that is a really nice colorway. I could see my dad wearing socks like that. I've been a little disappointed that all my husband wants to wear are the white athletic socks that come in a package of 87 (or so) at costco.

  8. Lucky John! With a wife who knits as well as you do, he'll never want for warm clothing!

    I love the colors, the yarn looks very 'masculine'. You always choose perfect yarn for all your projects!
