WIP - Business Casual Socks
This is a free Tanis (TFA) pattern, Business Casual. I'm knitting them in Cascade Yarns Heritage Paints sock wool, 75% merino 25% nylon. The colour is Forest.

Loving this pattern and really loving this yarn.

Very pretty yarn and it doesn't detract from the stitch pattern! What a great sock pattern. Thanks for sharing your photo and the pattern!

Yeah, they're coming out really well. I thought they'd be more difficult but I'm doing OK with the pattern. Put them on your to-do list GG.

I d/l the pattern so I can work out how to do the diamonds on my toe up socks. Thanks for the link! My goal is to have all the hand knit socks I need so that they're all I wear. I have a whole cone of Valley Yarns Franklin Natural that is destined to become socks. I might even dye some of them with Kool Aid.

The dying sounds like a lot of fun, I like a good science experiment! I'm wearing my hand made socks today for the first time this season, they feel so comfy and warm. Like a hug for your feet!

I also seemed up a pair of fingerless mitts at lunch time. They're going to stay at work as I sit close to a window and I can feel the cold there first thing until it warms up a bit in the office. Need to take them home tonight and get a pic.
