Stripey and loud was the order of the day for these socks! I think that they fit the bill perfectly and if you account for the fact that the man has one foot extended you will notice that I finally got it right and those socks are practically identical!
No real pattern on those bad boys, just knit 2 purl 2 ribbing that spirals around the leg and instep of the sock. Short row heels and rounded toes complete the "pattern". :)
Next up ?
The Gardener which will be a challenge if for no other reason than I have never knit toe up socks before!
