I kinda feel silly. I was knitting in a waiting room yesterday (I had my dad’s sock in my bag for purse knitting). As I happily went round and round I thought to myself “oh these are going to be striped!”
This really shouldn’t haven been a surprise to me. The yarn skein CLEARLY shows itself to be self striping. Chalk one up for mommy brain!
They are nice thick stripes on 72 stitches. I can’t even imagine how much bigger these would have been if they had been socks on a stitch count for me! I do like the blend of blues, purples and grey. It’s pleasing yet still “dude” appropriate. But I’m pretty sure if I knit my dad bright pink socks he would proudly wear them, he’s that awesome.
They’re going to be gorgeous, too! 🙂 x
cant wait to see them finished
Those look great!
They look great. I have to admit, I laughed out loud when I read that you just noticed the socks would be striped. I like mom brain stories, they remind me that I’m not the only crazy one.
After two kids I think my brain is more Swiss cheese than grey matter
Those are good dude colors! Will you be able to get your Dad to model them?
The real question is will I remember to ask!?
