Another pair of the Yarn Harlot’s Earl Grey Socks have been completed. This time they are Earl Greens! I made these for my dad for Father’s Day. I originally made him these socks in red for Christmas 2007.
I used Knit Picks Gloss in Parsley for this rendition of the pattern. I really like Knit Picks Gloss. I’ve used it for a few other pairs of socks and they have worked out. I don’t think I’ve actually knit it up into socks for myself though. I need to do that one of these days. Here the Earl Greens are modeled by M.
I really like the side cable detailing in this pattern. It’s subtle and keeps me from boredom. I think it would be cool to add a center cable at some point (or find a mens sock pattern with a cable).
