Manly Socks

Found this picture in the archives. Nice worsted weight socks I made for the hubby. Originally designed to keep his feet warm while topside, but their special washing needs make them fairly unsuitable for submarine life. Still pretty cute. Easy to make with a mere 200 yards (less actually) of worsted weight yarn and basic sock pattern, the only one I use really. They knit up super fast on size 8 needles. I hope to get the basic instructions, plus directions for easy varaitions written out soon....hopefully others will find it as fun as I do.
