My First Socks

So I've been very much loving Knits Men Want. The scarf pattern I used for Jason's and my scarves came out of it, and I think my next project will be one of the lovely sweater patterns. In the meantime, I finally got to doing my first pair of socks (for Jason) with a nice, basic pattern from this book as well. Of course, it called for 650 yards or what worked out to 5 skeins of the Borroco 'Vintage Chunky' in Douglas Fir and I only needed one skein per sock! Ah, well, I'll just return one and exchange two for another color and make myself a pair. I could use some nice, warm socks for lounging at home, too!
