He said that he wanted orange and green yarn for his socks, and that’s what I found for him. I had him try on the cuff just before I started the heel flap and he liked how they felt on his skin. He has sensitive skin, doesn’t like itchy or tickly anything. I’m using Plymouth Yarn’s Galway Paint color 805. Usually one skein will make a pair of socks, but he wanted a higher than usual cuff so it will take more. Just a couple more chores around the house and I can sit down for awhile and perhaps even finish this one. Although it’s nice enough outside right now, we are in for a “weather event”. How big and how much is anyone’s guess.
