Get Outside! in November

I always picture November--here where I live--as being the last chance to get out and really enjoy the outdoors before having to bundle up like the abominable snowman.

With this in mind, and with all the hunter's and outdoorsman in my life, I decided to share this pattern with all of you for our November Sock of the Month Pattern.

I used a very durable, yet very soft, yarn from Haneke Wool Fashions. It is a sport weight merino/linen blend yarn. I have several colors in stock in my store--most are masculine. However, I have a couple of more colors that I will be posting for sale later this week. Be sure to check it out if you would like to use the same yarn I did.
I added a "boot cuff" to the sock (it's optional on the pattern). Boot cuff's prevent all of the rice grasses, thorns, and burrs from finding their way into your boots. You can make it as long as you want and to the specifications of the boot wearer. Just make sure your bind off is nice and elastic so that it will fit down over the boot.
This is a super warm, super soft, and super easy sock!
The pattern is now available in our Google group. Head on over and download it so you can get started! Can't wait to see what every one comes up with!
Happy Knitting!

These look Great! I can hardly wait to cast on. Just as soon as I finish a chemo hat I will cast on my socks. I hope to make these up for hubby for Christmas.
