So, here they are in action!
These are for Mr. Man and they are artyarns superwash merino. Dudes, I started these socks WAY before I started dyeing my own sock yarn! The pattern is "made up as I went along" by Knit Witch - completely unpublished and only written on a scrap of paper in my mind. Trust me, I was regretting that when I went to start the second sock about 6 months after the first one!!! Essentially it is just a plain vanilla toe up version with an xo cable run up each side of each leg. The ribbing is 2x2 because I simply can't take 1x1 and remain sane for too long of a period. I can do pretty good ribbing continental style which is definitely helpful but I totally suck at doing continental knitting on DPNs - go figure.
Of course, the sock blockers are by the one and only Turtlegirl!
Next time though I will do a broader cast on for the toes (they are a little pointy for my tastes) and I suppose I really could just cut them and fix it with a little kitchener. Hmmmmm....................
