Aidez KAL and Work Socks

I’ve got almost 17″ of the body completed.  I’m looking forward to knitting the sleeves since they’ll go along much quicker.  I’m adding about an inch and a half to the length, and will be adding some length to the sleeves too.

Hubby is going away for a few days on a bird hunting trip.  I may have to reluctantly set Aidez aside for those days since it’s the perfect opportunity to knit him some thick warm wool socks for Christmas.  My absolute favourite workhorse wool sock pattern is Liat Gat’s KnitFreedom’s Worsted Weight Sock Pattern – Toe Up/Top Down.  It’s free (after subscribing) and super simple.  I’ve used other patterns like it, but this one takes the cake.

Here’s it’s Ravelry page: Beginner Worsted-Weight Socks for Magic Loop, Toe-Up or Top-Down. Go down the page a bit, for the free download link.
