Lopi Socks

Thanks for all the compliments! I’m glad you like it as much as I do.

I’m back from my latest trip, which went very well, I think. I’m hoping to be able to catch up a little on the other areas of my life by being in the same place for more than a few days. Among other things, that means catching up on blogging! So here’s one FO update:

Over Christmas, the main knitting I managed to do was to finish up two pairs of Lopi socks for Mark, to match with the Lett Lopi sweaters I’ve already made him.

I wouldn’t have thought they’d be comfortable, but he seems to like them — over top of another pair of socks, though (since they’re not exactly soft!). But since he wants them for the coldest days of the year, that’s fine.

Did you use Lopi or Lett Lopi for the socks? Jon loves to wear thick wool socks over cotton socks in the coldest part of the winter. Love the little bits of pattern in the band at the top!

Aven, these are gorgeous…I just made my first pair of socks (bday present for Dad) recently, and I admit that’s my new obsession :) I have shied away from patterns like this for the most part, but now that I’ve finally mastered both dpns and cable needles, I think I shouldn’t be a chicken*$*% anymore!
Hope all is well…
