Uncle's Socks

Pattern: Basic Short Row Toe Up Socks
Yarn: Lang Yarns, JaWoll Jacquard Superwash (75% new wool, 18% nylon, 7% acrylic; 45 g/190 m, +5g reinforcement) 2 skeins, color 154
Needles: US 0/2mm double points
Guage: 20 sts & 28 rows = 2 inches in stockinette working in the round
Info: These were my take along project. I worked on them in the car, while in line, etc., so I only got to work on them for about ten minutes or less at a time. As a result, it took me almost three months to complete them. I chose this color because they are going to be a gift for my uncle and I thought that these were pretty masculine colors.
