This pair of socks is going to be for Greg. He was very patient while I knitted the two Jaywalkers, Meghan's Pomatomus and the Tidal Wave. So, yesterday I went through the sock yarn tub(s)..yes, that is plural now...and found five suitable yarns from which he selected Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Camouflage. Then it was on to the problem of which pattern to do. I used Ravelry's pattern search function and typed in "men's sock" and up came The Gentleman's Sock pattern. The comments looked favorable-so I printed it out and cast on the 80 stitches required for a medium. It should go smoothly.
The socks are on a potting bench that Greg made for me ten years ago...a birthday surprise that he kept hidden in the shop.
