First Christmas present done and I also finished my "Manly" sock for the October SKA challenge.
These socks are for my favourite son-in-law..yeah, I can say that..I only have one!
Pattern:- Oliver Socks By Marlowe Crawford.
I really was intrigued and seduced when I read the intro to this pattern. A series of increases and decreases give the sock a unique shape and it's supposed to fit like a glove. You can see the line of increases along the bottom of the foot and the funky 'V' shape on the top.
Even tho' this was a boring plain sock the increases and decreases kept me interested.
(Thanks you Grand Poobah for modelling it for me.)
Yarn:-'Shalimar' superwash sock. I bought this yarn a couple of years ago in Maryland and always put off using it because I wasn't sure I liked the colours. Let me just say I love it, and sadly it's been discontinued.
I am planning mittens for my friend Elaine for Christmas. I usually knit her socks. Just doing something different this year.
