sensitive men and their socks

I finally finished the first Sensitive Man sock!


It turned out just as I had envisioned it and is soft and cushy and comfy. As planned, it hugs the foot to minimize irritation that happens when loose handknit socks slosh around inside shoes. I immediately cast on for the second sock, using my easy-peasy Sophietoes method for toe-up socks. (This is smoothest DPN cast-on I've ever found and I created it quite by accident, when I couldn't remember how to do a complicated toe-up cast on that I'd been using...)

Another thing I like about these Sensitive Man socks is that there are no bulky seams or transitions - they're all nicely smooth inside.

All the sensitive men in my life like these socks:

Thanks - they really are very comfy. I've gotten a lot of requests for them. On the down-side, I'm stalled in the middle of the second sock...I finished the foot and heel...and now am in a kind of mid-SecondSockSyndrome...
