Sock it to me!

Yay! My first socks!!!

These were for my dad for Father's Day. They are a vintage pattern from Hand Knits by Beehive - Socks Men and Women, originally published in 1948. I made them with a bit less than 2 50g skeins of Paton's Kroy 4 Ply, which is 75% washable wool and 25% nylon on #2 bamboo double pointed needles.

Here they are all wrapped up to gift:

I have to point out that my newest favorite is the tiny tote that my Knitty Secret Pal gave me, it is perfect for sock projects! Thanks again, SP!!!

Gorgeous! What a lucky sock recipient. Please do be sure to post them on the Vintage KAL - people would love to see them. I love the pattern - would you consider sharing it on your blog?

Duly posted on the Vintage KAL.

As far as sharing the pattern goes, how do I know if it is legal?
