I've very lucky to have a husband who knits and appreciates hand knit items. He loves bright, funky socks and I've just completed a new pair for him. They were made to his specifications - low, ankle socks with a ribbed pattern to hug his feet.
They were made with the brightest yarn in my stash, a skein from Creatively Dyed, purchased at the New York Sheep & Wool festival two years ago.
And this is him savoring the comfort and foot hugging goodness of his freshly knit socks. I can't wait till he puts his orange shoes on. Ha ha!
