Gentleman's Simple Winter Socks

Another pair out of Nancy Bush's Vintage Socks book, these are the Gentleman's Winter Socks for the KAL from that book. While I had originally planned to make them for MyGuy they are now my socks. The yarn was a Regia and I knit them on 2mm bamboo needles. The heel construction was a bit weird, the sole part of the heel is rather thin. A first day of wearing showed them to be alright as far as the comfort went, however, so I will keep them this way.
