xmas gift 6

socks for dad

opal superwash on size 0 pony pearl dpns. lichen ribbed socks from knitting vintage socks. they are a 3:1 rib that doesn't really show up in this pic.

finally i have finished these socks. remeber this yarn jess? i knit and ripped 3 socks before i got one that was the right size. after i figured it all out i knat up the second sock in under 24 hours - a new personal best. i hated this yarn by the time i finished these socks. so plain! so ruff! so i-have-knit-5-socks-with-only-2-to-show-from-this-yarn! but then a miracle happened! i put these in the washer when i finished and all the scratchy treatment on the yarn came off and they are soooooooo soft now. so nice, and the size? perfect
