FO #2: Dad’s Alpaca Socks


Originally uploaded by Vellan

Just in case anyone has missed the story:

These socks are knit from yarn I handspun specifically with my Dad in mind. He is a cyclist and gets cold, wet feet.

I made these for his birthday, and while he *seems* pleased with them, we’ll have to see if they do the job and keep his feet warm. They’re a three-ply (alpaca/alpaca/corriedale) for density and durability.

We’ve had a recent cold spell, but I don’t think it has yet been cold enough to test them.
