Welcome to Spring 2014. This is my latest Brethren Sock , colorway Golden Pear. I am hoping the next pair of socks I make will be my own pattern. I am working on the design and I am very enthusiastic about what it will look like. Thanks for stopping by.

It is amazing that you turn out these socks so quickly. However, being familiar with the pattern like you are, it really shouldn't be too amazing that you can knit them so quick. That color suits the pattern and your skin tone very nicely.

Joe I believe I have made 8 pairs of these socks, and they will probably be more in the future. The pattern is very intuitive in my opinion and well written. Even though I used a smaller needles that it called for, I met gauge, then I had to decided which size to make, it was a matter of math and the sock architecture. The cables in these socks makes the fabric not as flexible, yet it is. I think Millard has one of the most beautiful Male Sock patterns I have ever seen.

True words. It is a great pattern and it can be adapted easily. I had to go up needle sizes to meet gauge but the rest of it was easy to knit. Still...8 pairs and more to come. How delightful.
