These ain't the "Pitts"...

Finally... the "Mr Pitt" socks are compete!  Despite being dreadfully boring to knit because of the drab color and my general impatience of knitting non-stop ribbing... they have turned out quite nice in the end :)

The pattern itself is quite well written, and straightforward.  The end result is a nice, plain, stretchy, simple pair of men's socks... and it's available as a free pattern on Ravelry!

Mr. Pitt's Socks (aka Dad Socks) by Kaitlyn Wong

When I was reviewing my Christmas gift-buying list this year, I decided to make a simple pair of socks for my husband's uncle and cousin... but of course, while I know the shoe size of feet in question I don't have ready access to them to do specific measurements of key areas. (i.e. ankle and foot circumference)

Sooo... ribbing makes a good compromise, and will fit a variety of foot circumferences (I hope) with ease.  Generally I make mostly women's socks, and can eyeball them, but men's socks look ginormous to me.  Too tall, skinny long feet, and wide heels.  The photos show the socks on ladies size 7-9 blockers, because that's all I have around these days, but they would certainly fit on a men's size 9-10 blocker also with all of the stretchiness.

 

Black Mr Pitt Heel

 

Because it is so difficult to see the design with the black yarn (Knit Picks Stroll Kettle Dyed - in "Soot") I changed the photos to "Sepia" toned.  You can see the heel detail nicely in this photo.  -->

I plan on rounding out the gift with some trinket of some sort and a tin of homemade peanut brittle (which my husband seems to inhale whenever I make it... )
