Meanwhile...

While I was working out the numbers for the vest, and as a break from the monotony of black stocking stitch, I’ve been working on some socks for Mark. As you can see, they’re deisgned to match a sweater I made for him a while ago:

I’ve actually finished both socks now. The great thing about these socks, and the other pairs I’m going to make that will also match sweaters he already has, is that they’re worsted weight. These ones are Patons Classic Merino. At that weight they go very very quickly, even when I’m making them man-sized. I only worked on 52 stitches for each this time, for instance.

I’m a few inches away from the armhole shaping on the first front of the vest. I think I’ll only put up pictures when major milestones are achieved — how much black shapeless knitting does anyone need to see?

I think the matching socks/sweater combination is really cute. You’re doing a good job of matching them together, too!
