Johnny Mac

I knitted these for John using the yarn he chose. This is the most adventurous that he gets with clothing!

I used 2.25mm KnitPicks circulars, knitted both simultaneously.

I used my own Andersson heel Mach 2. The yarn is a standard sock yarn from a German superstore named Globus.

Nice manly socks. At least he's wearing LIGHT blue. If I'm not mistaken, isn't that progress, of a sort? So, I'm to assume he won't wear some of those spiffy jeans? -sigh-

They're beautiful! (And a very daring color for John, I must say!) I hope he enjoys every minute of wearing them.

beautiful! I love them

I wish my husband would wear cables and blue. He only wears black or white socks with simple ribbing. Knitting them puts me to sleep! (sigh) :-)
