Here are pictures of my Dad's 60th Birthday socks, I have just finished them in time for his birthday on 21st October - tomorrow!! These are the 1st socks I have knitted for someone else and my 3rd pair - sock knitting is really addictive.
I have used Wendy's generic toe up sock pattern, but modified it slightly by making it bigger and I altered the ribbing. These socks were made using Lorna's Laces Black Pearl colourway with 3.25 long circular Addi's using the Magic Loop technique, and although the colours have pooled massively I still think he will love them, given as a gift for his special day. More pictures on my blog.
