Evil Genius Socks

Hi guys. I finished the socks that are made using the Evil Genius Sock method found at http://www.yarmando.com/. Thanks again, Ken in Maine for sharing that site with me.

I used some of the yarn that we got at the Rocky Mountain Retreat either this past year or the year before. I used a superwash merino wool. It is called Bettie Sock and it was from Skeindalous.com in Parker, CO. In the photos, the blues are very bright, but in real life it's more of an aquamarine on the green side. I used an OttLite instead of a regular lamp.

Mark, those are some awesome-looking and great-fitting socks! I'm glad Don's formula worked so well for you.

Beatuiful! I like the way you brought the sock far up the calf. They look very comfy.

Exceptional work, Mark. Does it get cool enough in your new digs to wear such comfy socks?

Thanks everyone for your kind words of praise.

Yes, Lou, this week the morning temps were in the upper 30s but happily they rebound to the mid 60s. So, the morning finds me with socks on, but not my fancy homemade ones. I am going to make myself some ankle socks for home soon.

Terry, you will enjoy the site. I have found it to be very useful and then only sock pattern that I will need for socks unless I want to get fancy.

Ken, the site is awesome and I think of you every time I use it.

Jesse, I could have gone a little bit higher up but wasn't sure about having enough yarn.

Those are quite nice. It's always a great blessing to find a sock formula that fits and knits up well.
