My stitch marker exchange pal sent me this lovely sock yarn this week, Wildfoote from Brown Sheep.

My first thought for a project for these was men’s socks for Rob, something cabley. But when I showed him potential cabled sock patterns, he told me that cable knit socks look feminine to him. Couldn’t the lines just be straight, he asked. Hmm…. ribbing. Lots of ribbing. Size 14 feet… At least the yarn is lovely!

I love the tweed effect in this washable, 75% wool 25% nylon blend. I love the color, too, it’s just waiting for some excellent autumn knitting. London loves it too, which is why she’s asking, aren’t you going to make something for me?
