Thuja Socks

Thuja socks
Pattern: Thuja by Bobby Ziegler
Made for: Dad
Needles: DPNs: US 3 / 3.25 mm (leg and heel flap), US 2 / 2.75 mm (foot)
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash. Less than 3 skeins; not sure how much less, because I made another sock with some of it.

Notes:
Clear, easy pattern. The only pattern modification I made is that I'm knitting it with two colors. There's only so much navy blue knitting I can stand...



Still on the needles so he can try it on before I finish it.

Thanks! That's the idea - my dad always has cold feet.

I really love 'em. I need to learn to knit socks as soon as I'm done with my current project. I may come to you for hints. Maybe a cafe visit will be in order!

Thanks! I'd be delighted to show you the sekrits of the sock cult :)

Cool! I hate navy blue, it would drive me mad.

Thanks! I hate it too, but I like my dad, so I was willing to suffer. :)

Those look cozy.

I bought the fixins for sock making over the summer and I have yet to start. I think I am nervous or something. I do think that after my current project I am going to take the plunge :)

Thanks!

Yay! Socks aren't hard, especially top-down. I didn't think it made sense to knit socks given that you can buy them so cheaply, but my knitted socks make me so happy :)

I am being lured into sock knitting, I know I'm being lured into sock knitting... I bookmarked the pattern. If I print it out, then I know I'm done for...
