Whoa another pair of socks

ARE DONE!! These socks were done in just over 2 days. Of course it really helped that these were done in worsted weight yarn rather than fingering weight. Yarn used was Paton's Classic Wool. (Yes going to have to handwash them or else they'll felt and be super tiny)

I also totally overestimated the amount of yarn I'd need. I bought 3 skeins and I only used about 1.5, so I'll have to figure out what to do with the left over yarn. I'm thinking I might make him some fingerless gloves because his hands have been getting cold lately.

The pattern was super simple and actually fun to do. I wasn't bored with endless rows of stockinette stitch. The great thing is that they actually fit Trav and he likes them. He said that they are very warm.

I'm on a sock roll and having a lot of fun. I'm currently finishing up another pair that has been suffering from second sock syndrome for almost a year.
