Re-enactment Socks

A few weeks ago, a colleague asked if I could help with some Civil War re-enactment socks, as his were holey in the toes and heels. I looked at his previous pair and tried to find some similar yarn, ending up with Classic Elite Portland Tweed, a rustic-looking wool with some alpaca (and some man-made fiber, too... sshhh). I used David's Toe-Up Sock Cookbook for the pattern, and worked with just the length and circumference measurements, ending up with a reasonable fit.
