Business Casual and Denny's Kingdom

I've finished my Business Casual socks! After initial trouble after the heel with the stitch pattern on the foot for the size small, the second one came out perfect. I cast on 68 sts for the cuff and decreased to 64 for the stitch pattern on the leg after that. I decreased to 60 sts after the gusset. They fit fine, really easy to knit, and if there were not a million sock patterns out there, I would knit them again.

The socks look fabulous. I love all the WCY colourways; and their names are always so creative.

Denny is hilarious.

I love the socks! What makes them more perfect is that they're unisex and I know just a man who would love them.

As for Denny - he still cracks me up!

Those socks would be perfect for work.

Denny is so cute. He's so adorably alpha.

Your socks turned out fabulous as usual.
I'm kinda jealous because we got more blowing than snow. We have a 6 foot drift in front of the door but nothing covering the grass....... :(
