Preppy socks

Preppy faux-argyle socks in progress.

I'm knitting these socks for my dad for Christmas this year. He loves hand knit socks, and I love knitting them for him. I couldn't decide on a pattern so instead I just made one up. These preppy faux-argyle socks will add just the right touch of class to any outfit. I plan on writing up the pattern because these socks are just so cute and smart looking!

I'm knitting these in TFA Blue Label Fingering Weight yarn in Atlantic. I just can't get enough of this colourway, and though I hate to pick favorites, I love all my colourways the same, but I might love Atlantic the most. That's true for today at least, my favorite colour seems to change with every new project I knit!

  1. I hear you... today my favourite is Deep Sea - just bought 2 skeins for a honey cowl and is it ever yummy!
    Hopefully Mallard doesn't get jealous ;) I'm such a nerd.

  5. I love that sock, and the color! That pattern will be a huge hit. I don't know how you knit everything up so quickly, but I wish I could knit as fast as you! Can't wait to see that finished sweater :)

  8. Wow, that is a great pattern! I can't believe I've never done that before! Also...Atlantic is lovely and all, but it can't hold a candle to Midnight. Just saying.

  9. I agree that this is a gorgeous color and although it may seem weird that some socks look smart, I think you're right!!!
