Hubby's socks done.

How cute are these?

Finished them last night and he wore them for a while, but being wool... his feet overheated! :) They look good... but I was a bit disappointed with the color variation within the same dye lot. One yellow was nice and the second skein was a bit brighter and the strip patterns are slightly different too. But they are soft and he loves them!

Many people have been asking what yarn was used so.. The yarn used for these came from KNITPICKS.COM.... I bought it over Feb vacation along with several other skiens that I will begin to use this summer. It is very soft yarn! Luckily I bought some for my self too! Just in different colors.

Next I cast on for the eight cable vest from Interweave Spring 2005 with some cotton I picked up at the store closing yesterday. Sadly they were really closed today! So no more good deals. But I think I am making it too big. I may start with a few more skeins and work a smaller needle than what I started with... I'll post a picture once there are a few rows done on that. I would like to see this tank sweater get done and worn before the end of school.

I would say they marked the felted clog pattern up. It is $5.00 at my yarn store. Sounds like you made out like a bandit with the sale. Is that Knitpicks yarn you used for your husbands socks?

I love your husband's socks. They look fine but it is annoying when dye lots don't match.

The socks are very cool. Being a newbie knitter I'm very intimidated by the SOCK. I should just jump in DPN first, eh?
