I don't think fast and socks belong in the same sentence. :?? :teehee: How long is long? Knee socks? What weight yarn do you want to use?

what about using the quidditch sock pattern from Charmed Knits?

I'm going to be making some for my son (he plays football as well, Lineman) and it gets COLD at some of his games!
