Looong Socks

I don’t think that I will ever get used to knitting men’s socks, it seems like to took ages to complete.  Finally, though, my dad’s kilt hose are done.  Unfortunately, Mr. Yarn Bearer took the camera to work (again) so you’ll have to wait a few days for the “pair” pictures.  There is a photo of a single finished sock, so there you go.  On to the specs…

Pattern:  Canyon Hiking Socks by Julia Trice (in Greeting from Knit Cafe)

Yarn:  Knit Picks Telemark in Deep Navy, six skeins

Size:  Large

Needles:  US 3 12″ circular needle

Mods:  I didn’t add the stripes, my dad said that all he wanted were plain socks, in a deep blue.  Dad is oddly specific about not having any sort of adornment on his shirts, pants, socks, and footwear (including stripes, because, apparently, it’s too “busy”).

Hopefully, sending Dad these socks will encourage him to come out for Savannah’s big St. Patrick’s Day celebration.  This will be my first year and from what I hear, it’s huge and totally awesome.  Here’s hoping!
