Yep, It's Another Pair of Hand Knit Socks

I complained for weeks about how long it took me to make my dad's Christmas socks, and then I immediately cast on yet another pair of socks. Knitting can sometimes make us crazy, yeah?

This time around was way easier, in part because I used knitting needles that were one size larger than the ones I used for my dad's socks and in part because this sock pattern was much simpler.

 
Pattern: Simple Skyp Socks (FREE on Craftsy;! Note that this is an affiliate link.)
Yarn: Schoppel Zauberball in 1507 Autumn Wind

 

I made these for Alex, and he seemed to prefer this yarn over the yarn I used to make my dad's socks. And the color changes in the yarn mean that you don't need a crazy complicated stitch to make the socks look awesome.

 
The time for sock knitting is about to end, so maybe I should try to squeeze one more pair in for myself before winter is over!
