My husband hates tight socks, he says they make him feel claustrophibic so I made these for him from the Knitting Man(ual). They are the twisted stitch classic sock. He loves them - I think they're a little sloppy looking, oh, well. The twisted stitch pattern was fun to knit and I will most likely do it again. The yarn is a cotton/wool blend that I bought specifically for this pattern almost a year ago. It was great to work with but I can't for the life of me remember the name and of course, can't find the tag. When I do these again I think I use size 0 needles instead of the 1's it called for and continue the twisted stitch pattern on the instep down to the toe. I think they will have a more tailored look that way.
