According to my Ravelry project page, I knit a pair of worsted-weight socks for my step-grandfather for Christmas four years ago. Despite the rightfully incredulous comments by the owner of my LYS, he loved them and thought they were perfect. (I’m 99% sure the pattern I used wasn’t for worsted weight yarn but that was back before I knew ‘yarn weight’ was)
This year, when I was a bit delirious, I ordered some more worsted weight yarn to make new thick socks for him
, this time on purpose. It’s KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Superwash in ‘Solstice Heather’ (the same color as my mom’s Squircles). I finished them in a week, doing the end half of the second sock in less than a day. I took it to Rogue One and knit furiously on the edge of my seat.
These were just improvised and I might be eventually write up a pattern for them since I like the way they look.
