My DH desperately needs socks and he is never happy with the ones he finds at the store. We're in really hot weather so I try to stay away from anything in wool for him. I saw this Paton's Stretch yarn and thought I'd try it for him. Just a simple stockinette sock, size 13 men's. On Ravely (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Arielluria/stretch-size-13s). I just wish they had solids. I like the end result.

Thanks all. My first time with stretchy yarn. DH's huge feet being what they are, I think he'll really like them. It's too hot for socks right now in S. TX! :)

They look lovely. And I do love the way your baby is posing in the background!

He's a real ham. Anytime the camera is out he's usually in the shot, which makes my Ravelry projects page much more fun to look at if you're a dog lover :o)

He wouldn't be named Waldo, would he?

Good one. That might have to be his new nickname.

It was good, not hard to keep tension even.

I think they look great! Nice 'MAN SOCKS'! Sometimes men like the simplest patterns the best. NO, I take that back...MOST TIMES men like the simplest patterns the best!

Great job!

I know it's hard to knit for men! They simply can't pull off a pair of Pomotamous socks (the next I'm going to make), can they?!?

Poor guys.

I'm glad I'm a girl! :woot:
:teehee:
