I finished a pair of socks, finally!

Pattern: a highly modified version of Gentleman’s Half Hose in Ringwood Pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: ONline Supersocke Savanne-color
Started: 5/25/08
Finished: 6/18/08

I’m still working on my goal of knitting all the socks from Knitting Vintage Socks, but from the start I decided that modified versions were fine since I have very few males to knit socks for. This is one of those cases – I took the Ringwood stitch pattern and plugged it into a pair of socks that is me-sized. The yarn is one that I bought on my trip to Seattle for sock camp and also a new one for me. While I was knitting I got a lot of comments on these socks – the color combination really is gorgeous!

The yarn itself is a fairly standard wool/nylon blend, and it’s a bit scratchy compared to the 100% merino hand dyed yarns I’ve been working with lately. But – like the Noro socks – I think it will be perfectly comfortable on the feet and almost certainly hold up very well.
