These socks have been off the needles for a while, but I didn't want to post them until I gave them to the recipient. I knit these plainest, grayest socks ever for my cousin-in-law, Arthur. I used a basic top down pattern that I'm sure is an old standby for a lot of people, Priscilla's Dream Socks.
I'm not a huge fan of this color, but I do like how it knit up. I didn't pool too badly, and I think this color will look good with jeans. The only mod I made to this pattern is that I omitted the short row toe with that weird seam along the toes. I did a traditional decrease toe with a grafted seam. Hopefully these will be cozy!
