Cookie A does it again

I knit Eunice from Cookie A's Sock Innovation for Leon. I love this book and will, I expect, over time knit every pattern in it. Now, I knit these for Leon from Socks that Rock colour Manly yes, but I like it too. The name is perfect for the fibre, and as soon as I saw it I knew it had to be a pair of socks for Leon. Still, pairing the wool with the pattern, I expected them to be not at all manly, given that they are lace socks, but Leon was only planning on wearing them around the house with his new Ugg Boot grandpa slippers and you can barely see the socks:

They are one of the most wonderful designs I have knit. Cables using two cable needles, lace, and I think you all know my love for Socks that Rock. And they knitted up so pretty:

As well as being a typically wonderful Cookie A design, I think they came out manly enough. What do you think?

  1. They are a thing of beauty. Leon's a very lucky man to have such a dedicated knitter :)
