Chevron socks


Here's the Chevron socks (page 73) I made for my dad's Christmas gift. This was knit on my usual bamboo double points, in Froehlich Blaudband Maxi Ringel, color 7709, which is grey, blue, red and navy. I ran out of yarn near the toe so raided my stash of sock yarn inherited from my Grandma (my Dad's mom) and found some grey 100% nylon that matched quite well, so we have solid toes on these socks. I did buy a third skein from Carodan Farm, which ended up being a very different dye lot (grey was almost light blue) but I managed by only using the third skein for sections of navy, red and blue. And here's a photo of my dad with his socks!
