It took me way too long, but I finally got around to photographing these awesome socks I knit for my husband.
I had been after this particular colorway (Clover Colors) of Patons Kroy Socks 4 Ply for years. Every time I came across it in the store, there were never enough matching skeins to make a pair of socks. It was Joann’s that finally came through for me. I was in the store buying fabric and thought I’d check out the yarn. Lo and behold, they had three matching skeins! Score!
I used the Gentleman’s Plain Winter Sock with Dutch Heel pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks, except I didn’t use a Dutch heel. I’ve knit the pattern before and didn’t care for that particular heel, so I substituted a French heel instead. I kept a record of all of my mods on my project page for those who might be interested.
Truth be told, I may end up wearing these over regular socks when it starts to get colder. They are so pretty, I don’t think I could resist a turn wearing them!
