Resin is the perfect boot sock for active guys.  The socks knit up quickly, with a geometric stitch pattern that creates extra warmth, and a dense gauge in DK weight yarn that makes for great durability.

They're simple but interesting to knit, with an engaging and easily memorized stitch pattern that excels at showing off hand-dyed yarn.  Resin is knit toe up with a short row heel, which means the height is customizable.  Use exactly half your yarn for socks that match perfectly.  The hemmed cuff provides a clean, comfortable top.
