I mentioned before that I have been trying to get things finished. I have various projects sitting around, often with very little keft to do on them, and it seemed like it would be good to try and finish a few off. I finished Paul's socks (he wore them, he liked them), and i also finished off some socks I knitted for my Grandpa. I've not sent them to him yet, but they are knitted.

I put them off because I had to use some extra yarn of a different colour for the toe and I hated that this meant they weren't "perfect". they are done now though, and the toes really don't look that bad.
Pattern Spec:
Gentlemen's Sock with Lozenge Pattern from Knitting vintage Socks
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Peacock.
Needles: 2.25mm
Modifications: Shorter ribbing than required. Reduced to fewer stitches over the foot. Ignored the random instructions about needles and did my own thing. Slip stitch heel added.

To my untrained eye it looks like the toes are supposed to be like that. I'm still in awe of your ability to knit things like that (as well as your wool collection!)

I tried to get it as close as possible to the original yarn. My Grandpa will never know the difference, but I will!
