EZs Wish

I've only knit like 3 pair of socks that I can recall in my 8 years of knitting and not one pair for me (I need to change that). I'm not much of a sock knitter mainly because I have 2nd sock syndrome, but EZ has always asked for a pair of knitted socks so this year for his birthday he finally got his wish.


Just plain 'ol socks but special because they were handmade and the yarn is very nice, warm and cozy (not to mention $$ - turned out to be pretty pricey taking 3 skeins!).

************************************************************************

Pattern Source: Basic sock from The Knitter's Handy Book Of Patterns by Ann Budd
Yarn: Filtes-King Extra Stampato, 100% Australian Merino Wool
Needles: crap, I don't remember… but my gauge was 5sts per inch
Size: Man's M (next time should try Man's S for a tighter fit)
