… Wendel socks! They are red, they are bright, they are for John, and they have a really cool geometric pattern (ravelry project page here). I had several false starts with this pair. My yarn isn’t quite right, so everything was turning out way too big. I ended up trying four or five different things before settling on a stitch count and combination that worked. John picked the color and approved the pattern, and I’m really liking the shapes that are emerging. I didn’t quite believe all the comments that the stitchpattern was easy to memorize – but it really is!
