Gentleman’s Plain Winter Socks, started February 22nd, 2007, finished March 7th, 2007
Pattern: Gentleman’s Plain Winter Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn:Â Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Tropical Storm (from Carole)
Needles:Â KnitPicks Size 1 (2.5mm)
Dimensions:Â 10″ from ribbing to heel;Â 10.5″ from heel to toe
Pattern Notes:Â This pattern calls for a Dutch Heel which was interesting to do for the first time. However, I don’t think I’ll use it again since it creates seams under the heel where you put your weight which can’t be comfortable.
Would I knit it again?Â Yes – if only to hear RR’s reaction again. After the ‘photo shoot’ was done I said, “okay, take off the socks so I can wash them.” to which he replied without hesitation, “no. MY socks.” methinks he likes them ;o)
This pattern kills two stones with one bird…er…reverse that…it counts for Project Spectrum as well as for the Knitting Vintage Socks along.Â Yay!Â I finally contributed to an ‘along’!Â Now I need to go dye something…I’m so far behind on Twisted Knitters it’s not even funny.
