Finally finished the Earl Grey socks as designed by the Yarn Harlot. They took a while, but I think that is because of two things:
- boys like longer socks than girls
- boys have bigger feet than girls
These things are true of OH and I, so socks for him take longer. They were a nice relaxing knit though, and look nice in the colour that he picked. The cable was a faff in places, but looks nice and made it interesting to knit (that much plain stocking stitch would have driven me to drink). I used some Cygnet Woolrich yarn. It’s meant to be washing machine safe and has enough polymide in it to be hardwearing even on OH.
I may make these again one day, but not just yet!
