Man Socks

It's been 2 years since I knit Dave a pair of hockey coaching socks. He loves them and has worn them through 2 cold winters. (Austermann Step stayed soft and silky with that jojoba/aloe and they show no signs of wear or tear - winner socks for sure!)
He's been very patient waiting for this next pair. I offered him any yarn in my sock stash and here is what he wisely chose! I got them done just in time for hockey season... there will be no cold feet in the rinks this year!

Mountain Colors Bearfoot Socks

Pattern: Cuff down, eye of partridge heel over 64 stitches
Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot in "Wilderness" colorway - PERFECT for Man socks!
Needles: 2 socks on 1 2.5 mm 40" circular

Striped Mittens

Very warm "Striped Mittens" from Favorite Mittens (also known as the "Pole Pattern" in another of my books - The Mitten Book ) More about these mitts when they are done.

Stashbuster socks

Started my 1st pair of Stashbuster Spiral socks - I've wanted to make these since they came out as the Six Sox KAL pattern in February 2005 and I'm finally doing it! I've changed my mind on colors several times since I took this photo earlier today - WAY too many options in my sock leftover stash! All I know for sure is that the cuffs will be blue :-)
