Finished Knit: BFF Socks

BFF Socks

Pattern: BFF Socks from Knit. Sock. Love. by Cookie A.
Yarn: Elann Esprit in Coffee Bean

Pretty quickly after I started knitting I gave up trying to hide anything I might knit for Chuck as a gift. Generally knitting happens when we are hanging out getting into some TV or movie together, and it's pretty easy for him to see what I'm up to. But I hid these socks away for a couple of weeks after I finished them, determined to at least wrap them up for gift giving or something, even though I did actually let him try them on right after they were done. It's the thought that counts...and hopefully absence makes the heart grow fonder?

I tried them on myself as well, they are so comfortable, I may have to make a pair for myself too. Chuck got me the book for Christmas, I'm sure with the specific hopes that it would make me more likely to knit him some more socks. This seemed like the most guy friendly pair in the book, and I was please to see sizing options from XS-L that made it easy to adapt to the yarn I was using. I've found that knitting with vegan sock yarn always seems to turn out larger than the pattern, so I started with the XS, and it worked out nicely. I wasn't a stickler on the cable spacing, I figured that would be a bit tedious working on size 1 needles, and it wouldn't really bother me if they were occasionally longer or shorter. I think we're probably the only ones who will notice, and when I do, I kind of like it, it ads a little character.

Since these were for his birthday I suppose I'll spare Chuck the task of modeling this particular project. And I'll do my best not to steal them from his sock drawer...
