I finished a pair of “man socks” last week and you all know what an accomplishment that is. They were worth it, though, because Dale is absolutely in love with these socks.
He says they fit better than any socks I’ve knit for him before. I attribute it to two things: 1) my knitting skillz and 2) the yarn.
Dream in Color Smooshy Sock. This is good stuff, people. Really good stuff.
I was worried that I wouldn’t get both socks out of a full skein so I did a contrasting toe with some Louet Gems I had lying around. But honestly, I didn’t need to do that. Got that? You can get a pair of man socks out of one skein of this yarn.
I call them Dale’s Dreamy Socks. A play on the yarn name and a tribute to how Dale looks at me whenever I knit something for him.
Man Socks. They might just enhance your relationship.
