Mike's socks



The first finished knit for 2010 is a pair of socks for my DH . He's been feeling a little neglected in the hand knit sock department . In addition to my intention to clean out /knit up yarn , I've added husband socks to my resolutions for stash reduction . It seems a waste for all that yarn to be just sitting there unloved and unused .


The pattern is a simple waffle rib and the yarn is Lana Grossa Meilenweit Merino . I'm a teeny bit worried how these socks will hold up in wearing . That's been an issue for some sock knitters , but better knit up than sitting in the closet . Mike loves them and is more than happy to have them . He put them on right after they were off the needles and the ends sewn in . Nice to knit for someone who appreciates it ...

Very nice! My DH has just been mentioning that he'd like some socks ... maybe I should try something similar?

They look great! My Hubs, too, has been moaning that he wants some socks.

That's right! It's way more fun if people want to have your hand knit items! :o)
