I couldn’t stay away from socks for very long. This pair will be for my spouse. I’m trying to see if 64 stitches on 2.5 mm needles will be a good size for him. I’m also experimenting with a wool-free yarn. It seems to be working up just fine so far. Once I get into the leg a little bit I’ll have him try one on to make sure it fits ok. My Mystic Topaz socks were the same recipe and those fit him so hopefully it works this time too.
