2010 - FO No 7

I have finished my second pair of socks for 2010!  These are for my sister's workmate who wanted to try a pair of handknit socks since my sister told him how great they were.  These are a men's medium which are huge socks and knit in DK yarn too.  The pattern was super easy to remember and I just knit them on 3 dpns instead of 4 which made it a lot easier to knit.
Pattern:  Bulky Boot Socks from The Little Book of Sox
Started: 13th February and finished 20th March 2010
Yarn:  Heirloom 8 ply wool, about 3 balls, denim blue color
Now off to start another pair of socks as I bought 3 balls of Moda Vera sock yarn yesterday from Spotlight as they seem to be getting rid of their sock yarn for $5.00 a ball.  You cannot go past $5 handknit socks can you and the yarn does knit up very nicely.  I just need to decide on a pattern.  I still havent found the cable blue sock pattern as yet so they are on hold until I do.
Happy Knitting!

Lovely socks - hope he likes them as much or more than he should! How nice of you to knit them for him.

$5 a ball - it was only reduced to $7.99 in Penrith (Sun. 14th) and they only ahd one ball!

What a lucky guy to get a pair of handknit socks. Hope he treasures them and takes good care.
Knitting men's socks seems to take forever with the endlessly long foot.
Love yours, they look perfect.

What lovely manly socks - and thank you for your compliment on the baby dress - and yes one day I shall crochet properly I'm determined :)
