Man Sock #1!

One sock down! I think that was pretty good timing, I finished it on Wednesday, I think. Currently I’m halfway through the foot of the second sock. See the diff in size from my original sock to his? Crazy.

I decided to not rip out any of the first sock, and to knit him two brand new fresh socks. Fitting, I think. I’m still keeping the first sock as is, it is world traveled, after all.

Knitting socks for Man Size feet isn’t so bad. I think mostly because I like knitting socks for him, well, knitting anything, really, because he appreciates the time and effort and skill that go into these things, and wears them with pride. For instance. He was wearing the first one after I finished it, and we were watching TV, and he kept looking at the sock, and feeling the short row stitches of the heel. I asked if it was bothering him, if it was at all bulky, and he replies, “Oh no, I was just admiring the craftsmanship.” See? Worthy, I’m telling you.

    We told you he was a “keeper” when he survived a visit with our knitting circle. I’m glad to hear we were right.

    My hubby is that way, too. He absolutely cherishes everything I knit him, which is great since I love to knit for him.
