Dad's socks

Dad asked for a pair of socks. He wanted dark blue, wool, house socks for keeping his feet warm when he relaxes at night. This is the second pair of socks that I have knit.

Pattern: The pattern is from Knit Socks by Betsy McCarthy. This sock is called "Classy Slip-Up."

Yarn: As for my grandma's socks, I used a great yarn by Louet Sales called Gems Opal. It is sportweight, 100% washable merino wool, the color is called indigo.

Needles: I used a set of 5 double-pointed needles made from bamboo, US 3.

Final product:


The real color is much closer to the photo on the right, which I took indoors, but the photo on the left lets you see the slipped-stitch pattern.
