FO: Man's Stretch Socks
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. 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!

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.
