I cranked out these socks for Bill in a week or so (hockey playoffs = extra knitting time) and finished them yesterday morning. He wore them to play golf and reported that they were super-comfortable and cool. I used about one metre more than a ball of Scheepjes sock yarn for this pair (although now that I look at them, I could have made do without that extra metre had I not knit receptacle tips at the toes...).
OK, no time for chitchat -- we're out of coffee! I need to go to the store NOW.
