A month or two ago, my husband Robert mentioned that if I was looking for knitting projects, he would wear a pair of dress socks if I made them for him. Black dress socks immediately became my next knitting project. I ordered some solid black Cascade Heritage Silk sock yarn and got to work. I'm working out of the wonderful sock recipe book More Sensational Knitted Socks. The color in the picture is not quite right - the yarn is black, but it's hard to get a photo that shows both the color and the stitch pattern at the same time. This photo is already a bit old. Since it was taken, I've turned the heel and started the gusset.
