The doc loves these boot socks from Purl Bee (and so do I!). I’ve made a couple pairs for him–they are perfectly bulky for those freezing, winter days. And because they are knit in worsted weight yarn, you can make a pair in one sitting, pretty much. Sometimes they take two days, but in the world of socks, that’s great timing.

The color combinations are endless and you can use scraps of yarn for the heels and toes–something I often have just enough of not to want to get rid of but not much else I can do with them. The doc lucks out–more boot socks.

I have since knit him a DK weight Madelinetosh version for Valentine’s Day; stay tuned for those.

These boot socks are knit using Malabrigo Rios in azul profundo for the main and little bits of Rios in glazed carrot for the heels and toes. He’s since worn them a pile and they still look killer.

It’s getting luxurious around here.

I decided to knit Sean these Purl Bee boot socks for Valentine’s Day this year, mostly because they knit up so quickly in worsted weight yarn. I actually didn’t think they’d feel as light and airy as the finished project does–and they are, dare I say it, a foot’s dream, because I used Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage yarn.

I stash busted these socks with two skeins of Whiskers I had from a previous project I frogged, and some bits of the cactus flower colorway leftover from pussy hats.

I definitely see making more of these in my future–the color combinations are endless.
