Hmmm... don't look like gentleman socks to me. I was going to give these to my dad, but after knitting a few repeats of the lace pattern, I changed plans and decided to make these for mom instead. I don't quite know what to think about these – the overall look is nice, but the lace looks somehow a bit messy. The yarn was lovely though, and I used almost every inch of it!
