My winning January yarn was Cascade Sassy Stripes. The pattern I've opted for is a generic top-down sock. Not too exciting, but my husband chose the yarn for himself months ago, and this is what he wants. This will be my first time making "boy" socks.
I cast on last night and thus far have one cuff done.
He intentionally doesn't match his socks, so there will be one sock in each of the colorways:
It will almost be like making two different socks, so maybe this will alleviate second sock syndrome!
