The pattern for these socks is published in MenKnit Magazine.
These originally started from a class that I took at the local knit store. I bought the sock yarn from the shop at the time, plus I used up a few balls from the stash. It features six different yarns, mostly sport weight but a few that were fingering weight. I originally wanted to do more of a fall colored sock, but the yarn store's selections limited my color choice, so I had to settle. They feature my two-color eye-of-partridge heel unvention. The color scheme reverses itself on the opposing sock, so the socks don't quite match the way you would expect them to.
