I knit these for my son-in-law,  Bruce!

  1. It is hard to knit with dark colors. I'm even having trouble with gray these days. I love handspun socks. Those look so warm and comfy!

  2. Ugh, dark yarn.. not as much fun! Time to do something with a pretty variegated yarn to restore your sanity! :) Bruce will love them, though.

  3. They are a man's sock. LOVE THEM. I try not to knit with dark colors. It is hard on the old eyes. I do use a white or very light colored knitting needle for contrast when I have to knit with dark yarn. Lucky man
