Last Thursday I finished Kai’s socks. I am so happy to have them off the needles!
These were knit with 2.5mm needles and Patons Kroy FX in “Cadet Colors.” I really like how the yarn striped, but I can’t say if I’d use this yarn again until I see how it wears. I did notice that the yarn is thicker than most fingering weights, so anyone choosing to use it should take that into consideration.
I stupidly forgot to measure the socks before giving them to Kai, and since they’re on his feet right now, I can’t exactly measure them. However, I knit the pattern exactly as written. Kai’s shoe size is about a 10.5, and the pattern specified 9.5 to 10.5, so I’m assuming my measurements are pretty close to the pattern’s measurements. Once I have the chance to measure them, I’ll record my findings on my project page. (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/vernalequinox/gentlemans-fancy-sock)
