Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)


FO! Christmas socks for dad.

So they look a little silly on my feet, but they'll fit him, I promise. The pattern is a modified version of "Mother's day cotton slippers" by SockPixie. The only big change is that instead of a latticework on the toe, I did a stripe instead which I think was all it needed to be a more masculine design. They're very soft and quite comfortable. I hope he likes them!

I loved knitting these, and I need to make another pair, but I think I'll knit something else in between to give myself a break. Until next time, keep knitting!
