My bro-in-law will get these for Christmas.

I've done this pattern for almost 50 years and have it by memory. It's great.

Those are lovely! I've been struggling with socks, even with Silver's tutorial. Is the pattern an easy one?

Nice! I would like to have seen the finished sock laid out a little straighter where we could see all its specialness better. :-) Love your yarn.

Do you play the harp?

Thanks. Yes to all questions.

Yes, I learned this pattern when I was 10 years old. Be happy to help out if you have any questions. Socks are really just 2 tubes connected by a heel... with one end shut off for toes. My hubby likes to wear thongs with socks (i.e., flip-flops) so I once knitted him a pair with like a "thumb" for the big toe. Worked out okay, looks totally weird!

And yes, I play the Celtic harp. In that photo, it was for one of my co-worker's retirement function. Should see me in my goofy St. Patrick's Day over-sized Irish hat.

I wish I could do a sock pattern by memory... I had a hard time doing one with a pattern...is your pattern easier that others?

Well, I don't have much problem with the sock pattern. Turning the heel is the trick, but there are ways to fudge some if you goof up a tiny bit.

Once you've done one heel, you've got the basics down for most all the heels.

Be glad to help if you have any specific issues.
