Knittingdodo’s knit rants

Yarn, Needles, An Extinct Bird……What More Do You Need?

FO: Men’s Grey Socks December 28, 2009

Uncle John requested some house socks in Dallas Cowboys colors for Christmas. And, with a size 12 foot, I was grateful he wanted slippers. That meant I could use worsted weight yarn!

I want to say that this pattern was not very good. I got gauge perfectly, but the socks were way too narrow for a man. They would fit a woman fine, but not a man. Of course, I noticed this after I’d already finished the first and was halfway done with the second, so I had to rip out and start again.

Instead of adding stitches, I went up a few needle sizes and, while I was still worried they’d be too narrow, Uncle John assures me they fit nicely. He even sent me a picture to prove it, see?
