Mark's Birthday Socks

Still working on these, but getting close to done. My brother-in-law, Mark, has a birthday at the end of this month. Since I will be in Washington State in early September, I will be bringing these with me to give to him.

One straight on and the other from the side.

As you can tell, they look big, he has size 11 feet! My sisters really could have picked husbands with smaller feet!

Here is the back, I did them toe up, gusset and then heel flap... it's my favorite method!

This picture was earlier on, but you can see more accurate colors here.  I used a newer sock yarn from Knit Picks and really like the feel of it.  It was supposed to be variegated greens and grays, but as you can see it is doing some weird spiraling stripes.

  1. Those are a great man-color! I know what you mean about big feet/long arms. Except in my case, it was my own choice, so I have no one to blame but myself! I don't mind the extra knitting time, though. =)
