a little love for the Hawkeyes

In honor of my family's favorite fall activity, I am making a pair of Hawkeye football socks:

(Regia Nation 5391)

Well, not quite a pair yet... but I am working on the second one now.

I did an afterthought heel for the first time on this sock, and I am happy with the way it turned out. The stripe pattern looks so much better than it would have with another heel type and it fits good too!

(Oh yeah, and the best thing about knitting socks? You can wear colors/patterns that you might not normally wear on a sweater since other people can't see them in your shoes! ;-)
