Promises to Keep

 Daddio's thick boot socks were ravaged by moths last winter. I promised him another pair.

 He helped me crank the fiber for these Jacob socks. Daddio likes the fact that you can control the color by how much of the dark you add. Later I cranked a little more of the dark to add some stripes on the cuff.

Jacob is the original self striping fiber. Isn't it gorgeous?

 I am going to have a hard time giving these away.

It's a good thing I still have this much of the original fiber left.


  1. Those look so cozy! I've been meaning to make my Dad some boot socks for a long time!

  2. Love these socks, love how Jacobs gives you patterns without trying.
