I finished my stockinette Cal socks! I also got to break in my new sock blockers. I love the Cal/Cat combo I’ve got going there.
These socks are knit from Lorna’s Laces sockweight in a color that’s listed on the hank as “UCB”. Of course, the LYS I bought the yarn from (and several hanks like it) is pretty close to Cal’s campus. Hopefully these socks will bring my Golden Bears luck during the upcoming football season. Hmm, maybe I should knit up some Cal arm warmers to go with them. You know, for extra luck.
