school sock

not too cool for school (or work, or the pub), and making good use of a nearly solid yarn—though a little bit o’ multi works great too.

shown here in araucania ranco, a wool/nylon blend, colorway 107 midnight.

    You slipped these right in on us! Maybe you talked about them when I was gone, and I missed it, but the socks are a surprise to me! They’re really great. Did you like that yarn? I’ve been contemplating some of it, myself.

    Very nice — I totally don’t see any color changes.

    Cute socks!! Like how I can adjust size for my 10 year old grandson and how I can make for my son too! I think I have some of that yarn somewhere in my many bins of sock yarns. Now, which bin was that in . . mmmm.

    Those are great socks, especially as a good men’s sock pattern. Hmm, I like it a lot. Great job!

    Very nice! It might be just the thing to convince DH that plain stockinette with wild variegate yarn isn’t the only way to go.

    Looks like a perfect sock for anyone, me included.

    Really nice, Ann! Oh, btw, I knit another pair of your dolomite socks for my husband in the largest size, and they fit perfectly! He loves them, so thanks so much for a wonderful pattern, and this one looks like a real winner, too!
