Not-too Brainless

Brainless sock

I started knitting this thinking it was going to be a pair of socks for me. As I was knitting them the chevrons and the fairly camouflaged colouring suggested that Mac was a better recipient. They're called Brainless yeah, right, mostly okay, but there are aspects that really require a lot of thinking. It also was supposed to stop where the front needle is but he requested more length, and then more, and more, until I could have done twice the number of cables but as I already had finished one sock and he didn't seem to want much more and by the time I realised how much more he wanted I was already done with this pattern.

The yarn is GB Inka 100 which was a bit fuzzier than I expected.

  1. I haven't seen that pattern before, I must check it out. They're certainly long socks now, but I bet Mac loves them. They'd certainly be warm on the bike.
