Look Dad

A new sock for you!

Uncle Frank socks

A new design no less!

Uncle Frank socks


And what does IrishDad say? "Wouldn't it be easier if you just fixed the holes in my other socks?"

Uncle Frank socks

Seriously Dad. What fun would that be!

Uncle Frank socks
Thanks Boondock Saint (my brother!) for the sock modeling! Well done!

I'm loving how my new sock pattern is coming out! Over in the Sock Knitters Anonymous group, one of our monthly KAL themes is to knit socks for a man. I thought I'd design my Uncle Frank socks. Disco had suggested cables and it stuck. I'm using STR heavyweight, in Manly yes, but I like it!

More details coming soon!

Happy Socktober!

Carrie you are SOOOO international :0)

I absolutely LOVE these socks - they are exactly what I was thinking for Frank. brings a little tear to my eye. I hope that Mimi will like them :0). I want to knit some for my Taid for Christmas.

Jodi said...

Very nice! I'm so pleased to see that they're knit up in STR heavyweight, too. So much faster, esp. with men's socks.

dianne said...

Another winning design! I love that it is in HW too.

sgeddes said...

They look great! You just keep putting out the hits! One great pattern followed by another. These are nice and manly!

Zonda said...

Those are fabulous! Can't wait for the pattern to come out..not that I'd knit them for a man, they'd be for me :)

Maria said...

Like(100) I've got the perfect green STR waiting!

cockeyed said...

handsome, yes! and i like it too~

Brandy said...

Those are so nice looking! I love those v-shaped cables that head toward the side and twist up, like wings a bit. And my husband is a bit the same as your dad, new clothes aren't warranted until the old ones are stained or torn and can't be fixed anymore. But you are right, where's the fun in that?!

chemgrrl said...

Oh! Love it! Now I need to go buy some more STR heavyweight in manly colors. Or maybe I could just make some for me in my Lover's Leap. Hmm, I think that second option is a better one...

cpurl17 said...

Gah! I had a skein of Manly Yes in my basket last week and took it out last minute....but now I have an excuse to go back!

Kjirsten said...

I LOVE these! And I need to knit them for my Dad for Christmas. They're prefect! I'm ordering some heavyweight now (I'm normally a lightweight kind of girl)...please, please, please put the pattern out soon!!!

weezalana said...

What a fab, manly design! Even though they're for your dad, I think you should name the pattern Boondock Saint.

sheepish one said...

wow, carrie! so handsome! i'm anxiously awaiting more details.

Tricia said...

Fantastic Socks! And quite manly, yes.

Bezzie said...

Manly AND interesting! JAckpot!

line said...

I love your design. It is manly and still looks great.

Jackie said...

Very nice! Love the color and it really highlights your design!

Stilaholic Nartian knits said...

Awesome socks! Love the colorway 'cause it's so neutral yet has that little hint of twist.

dawn said...

I love the new sock design...and your brother's shoes too.

Jean said...

Beautiful socks, any man would love them. I got such a laugh with your father's comment, men can sometimes be too practical.

hearthead said...

I LOVE them!!! My Dad needs a pair for Christmas...when does the pattern go on sale???
You rock...I am in awe of your talent!

gaylen said...

cupcakefaerie said...

Oh so manly! Congratulations on another winner. Looks fabulous! This design may encourage me to knit hubby another pair. :)

Beth said...

Love them!! Not that any man in my life would wear them. . . but I would. :)

peaknits said...

Wow - you are a designing fool:) These socks are fabulous - your lucky dad!

tiennie said...

It's a gorgeous design!!

Erin said...

Those look excellent!

Batty said...

Lovely man socks! Very wearable. Just enough detail to be an interesting knit, but not so detailed that a man wouldn't want to wear them. Great job.

Knitting Kris said...
