From the knitter's almanac, done in Paton's wool rich DK. The only mod really was that I changed from rib to st st. There were a few numbers played with for the larger guage.
They are destined to be "superman socks" for my brother. When he was little he was obsessed with superman and I made him some superman boots by drawing a superman logo in gold paint on the side of some red wellington boots. Now he's all grown up, I said I'm make him a slipper sock version.
I'm going to put some blobs of fabic paint on the soles, so he's less likely to slip when he's wearing them.
I'm not sure whether to embroider/ crochet on the superman logo or use fabric paint for it. What do you think?
Next up, some mitered mit's from the same book. Though I think I'll do them top-down, on two circs (both mits at once, if I can).
