oooops, our trip to michigan this past weekend was way busier than we thought, so i didn’t get this pattern posted til this today.
however, during our stay there, we did manage to get some super-cute photos of the new basketweave sock with our friend buddy.
who keeps a strict eye on everything that goes on within earshot. david has acquired a new friend; buddy stuck pretty close to him most of the weekend.
both man and beast are loving the blue brilliance of zen yarn garden squooshy sock in colorway masculine wave (a limited edition club yarn; serenity 20 in colorway mystic ocean looks a like a good substitute).
haha, i didn’t quite finish david’s second sock in time for the photo shoot (hence the cool slipper to distract you), but i can assure you it’s on the way—i got about halfway through it on the ride home and i plan on getting more done in class today . . . from here, it won’t be long til the toe shaping is in sight.
thank you for sharing your lovely photos, too helen; we always appreciate seeing some variety. helen was able to knit size large from one skein, in case you are wondering . . .
7-year-old amad is also enjoying the pair i knit for him while visiting in january; his are done up in kollage sock-a-licious, colorway blue heaven. i’m always glad for a bit of nylon in the guys’ socks . . . and this one has it, along with some silk for softness.
amad is wearing the second smallest size; that gives him a little room to grow.to purchase pattern or view complete pattern information, please click here to visit the knitspot pattern shop. or purchase pattern in our ravelry shop.
and to helen for helping out with a test knit and THEN providing these terrific photos as well—we love that!
our dear friend agnes also pitched in with a test knit and it was so good to have her on board again; i’ve missed her lately (it’s my fault; i’ve not been designing enough socks these last few months)
and finally, thank you to amad, david, and buddy for being good sports! we love our men around here, especially the ones who are happy to model once in a while.
