Months after casting on, I finally finished Brad’s socks.

Pattern:  Stansfield #11 from Charlene Schurch’s Sensational Knitted Socks

Yarn:  Cestari 100% wool, worsted weight in Spice Heather.  Used approximately 190 yards per sock.

NeedlesKnit Picks Nickel Plated dpns, US size 3 (3.25 mm)

If I can get them away from Brad long enough, I might block them.  Or not.

I am also enjoyed new wool socks.  When I ran to REI before our camping trip to purchase wool socks for the kids, I couldn’t resist getting a pair for myself.  My first pair of SmartWool socks.  I justified the purchase by claiming I would never knit myself knee length socks.
