The mister has a new pair of socks, knit of Fleece Artist Trail Socks. This is a merino-nylon blend and quite a lovely firm yarn. The colourway is called Hercules. You can see the colours from Fleece Artist on this page of their site. They’re in alphabetical order so just scroll down to find Hercules.
Here are Mr. Math’s new socks.
I had originally bought this yarn to make myself knee socks. I bought two skeins and knit one sock from one skein then cast on the second. It striped differently from the first, possibly because I started in a different point on the repeat, but also was very different in colour.
This happens with handpainted yarns and I could have been cool with it. Instead, I decided to frog the knee socks and make two pairs of regular socks, one from each skein.
Mr. Math got his first.
I’m still trying to figure out if I can keep from frogging the entire knee sock knit of the other skein. Unfortunately, I knit it cuff-down, so I think I have to rip it back the whole way. I kind of like the spiral, but that only happens with more stitches for the calf. Maybe I can cut it off around the point of that needle (??) and save the work. I have to have another look at it and see.
What do you think of Mr. Math’s new socks?
nice socks Mr. Math!!
I remember when you posted those knee socks! I thought it was kind of cool that each one would be unique, but I also love the pair you made for Mr. Math.
