I went ahead and got that second sock finished last night! These socks are for me and were also a test drive of the stitch pattern (Simple SKYP socks), before I commit to a pair for Mickael. I learned the hard way that not all stitch patterns are something I want to use for a man sized pair of socks. I will definitely make him a pair of socks using this stitch pattern - it's a fun one to knit.
Here's a close up of the speckles. The Birch Gray colorway is cream with gray speckles. If you're looking for cream with black speckles, the Optic colorway, also from Madelinetosh is what you're looking for. There's more information about the yarn and socks on yesterday's post, just below this one.
