Disappointed
Monday, November 21, 2005

I can hardly believe it myself, but I finished weaving in the ends on Kyle's "Marine Pullover". I'm blocking it right now and I'll post pictures when it's dry. I made Kyle try it on and it fit well, but he said it's too hot. This is why I don't want to knit clothes for people. It's bad enough when I'm disappointed with a sweater I've made myself, it's a million times worse when someone else has complaints. Now he wants a pair of socks. I've never made socks before, so this should be fun. He wants some really thick, bootie-type socks, so if you know of any big sock patterns for worsted weight yarn, let me know.

I just posted one on my blog - Guitar Boy socks. There is an appalling lack of "guy" socks out there. Footies, worsted, #4 needles. They have a cool/weird slip-stitch rib on the front. I'm working out a couple kinks in the pattern, so if you decide to knit it just holla anytime you have a question. Don't feel obligated.

Here's another, but they are a double-strand of worsted. Eek!

Hey Jen,

Thanks for the links. Unfortunately, Kyle has size 12 feet! I'm going to keep looking. I hope your brother-in-law's mother is doing okay.
