I don't think I will live long enough to stop being cranky about the fact that men have dainty little ankles. I think that fact of life will always annoy me.
I knit socks for my best guy friend. He wanted ORANGE but had to settle for ORANGE AND PINK that may or may not be seen in space. The yarn is that Neon Now stuff from the other day. It bleed like a mofo. Shocking, right? I added some vinegar to the soak and everything got better.
Smooshed onto too small girlie sized blockers for the photo taking only.
The pattern is my usual go-to. Partly because I don't really have to think much, but also in part because it's been a long time since I made this man socks. CCSR toes and heels, knit toe-up using Magic Loop, a sewn bind off and 2 x 2 ribbing.
Like close to a hundred other pairs of socks I've shown all y'all over the years. Although, I think this is the first pair that have been this bright. This pair of socks was a good cure for the ghosts of socks before.
Oh, and he loves them. Imagine if he got hand-spun, hand-knit socks. ;^)
