Completed Project: Sean's Socks

It took a couple years after buying the yarn to actually get the socks made, but finally, here they are in all their glory!!!

Socks for Sean 10

Socks for Sean 11

Socks for Sean - size Men's Large, Socks that Rock Yarn - Colorway "In the Navy"
More details on Ravelry

These are the largest sized socks socks I've completed to date, and unlike my last pair - which I loved and Perches loves - this time the yarn weight matches the needle size and the pattern.

Sean really likes them. When I finished them and these photos were taken, he wore them as long as he could until his feet were too hot to keep the socks on. He's looking forward to winter when such warm socks will come in handy.

One pair down and two to go on my Crafty Resolutions list. I have plenty of skeins of sock yarn from which to choose. I do know who I will be making a pair for next, I just have to pick out the yarn. I'll also make a pair for myself, probably from the Lion Brand sock yarn I picked up in NYC. Maybe I'll have that completed before Halloween..but I'm holding myself to that deadline. Before any other socks can be started, I've got a couple of what I hope are quick side projects to complete before the Knit and Crochet Show.

Nice work! And I love the new layout - is that a picture of Irish cliffs in the background?

It is - the Cliffs of Moher. Blogger has a new template feature which I'm loving. I'll probably tweak things a bit more before I'm happy with the look of everything.
