FO: Man Tweed Socks
Pattern: My Toe-Up Socks with Judy’s Magic Cast-on for the toes and Knot Another Hat’s gusset heel slip stitch formula.
Yarn: 2 skeins of Regia Tweed
Needles: US 1 circ's
Start Date: January 26, 2007
End Date: February 11, 2007
Comments: This is a perfect example of going toe-up on socks to benefit the foot size and yardage. Each ball contains only 136 yards. Do you want to see how much I had left after binding-off? Don't scream...I know I yelped when I felt the end.
Phew... Yeah, I know... talk about sweating bullets. These socks are sized for a man's size 9 1/2 - 10 size shoe. I love doing the slip stitch gusset heel flap on my other socks, so I went ahead with these.
