Blue Moon STR Husky and Midsummers Night socks

Finally! I started these last summer as a back-up easy travel knitting project while on vacation in Canada.
Knitting these socks got off to a slow start, didn’t have much enthusiasm, it kinda  sucked to be a Husky this year.

Worst Team in the PAC-10

Blue Moon Socks That Rock Lightweight in colorway Husky
(specially dyed for us sad University of Washington Huskies)
150g (1.2 hanks) for men’s shoe size 10-11, 8 stitches/inch on size 0

DH was glad these socks were not done in time to be cursed as The Unlucky Socks.
Knit at the low end of the recommended 8-10 stitches per inch and they are hard (stiff), I canNOT imagine knitting this yarn at 10 stitches per inch. DH says the socks feel hard, as do the STR heavyweight socks I knit for for hiking.
For the hiking socks, he says they feel hard but thinks that might provide more protection for his feet.

Blue Moon STR Heavyweight, colorway Midsummer’s Night
146 g (1 hank was plenty) for men’s shoe size 10-11, 
5.6 st/in on size 3 and 6 st/in on size 2 (for heels, toes, soles)
