I went back to knitting socks in March. I'd knitted a pair for my dad for Christmas and he was so pleased with them that I thought I'd knit a pair for his birthday.
I used the Regia World College Color in Ceremony colourway which I bought from Kemps at a greatly reduced price and it knit up lovely. It's thicker than the sock yarn I usually use so it makes the socks that little bit warmer.
The pattern I chose was Thuja by Bobby Ziegler, it's nice and easy but gives a great ribbed design.
I was really pleased with them, my dad was too and that's what counts.
