Man socks

21 February 2011 · 1 comment in Knitting

So far, I’m actually following though on my resolution to knit more socks in 2011. James has just spent four weeks in China for work, so when he got back yesterday, I surprised him with with handknit socks as a belated Valentine’s day gift.

Man socks!
Stockinette socks knit from Have You Any Wool Luxe Sock in Graphite.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have any suitably masculine yarn, so I wasn’t able to reduce my sock stash. I ended up with some HYAW merino cashmere blend which was wonderfully soft to work with. I also love the way the plain stockinette shows off the subtle variegation. The other details are pretty boring: heel flaps, extra long 2×2 cuffs and a basic toe. But the socks fit perfectly and I know they’ll get worn a ton. Gift success!

Well done! They’re so nice, and I agree, the variegation is lovely. Awesome gift!
