Cold Feet Socks
My latest FO - Cold Feet Socks for my hotty hubby. I started these as a pre-wedding gift. You know, in case he gets cold feet. Of course, I didn't finish them in time for our wedding day, and thankfully his feet were plenty toasty. And they are staying toasty! He wears them almost everyday. (Yep, pulls them out of the laundry.) For a man who usually takes off his socks as soon as he gets in the door and walks around the apartment barefoot, he now reaches for his handknit socks. He just loves how they fit. Bless his hunky heart.
This photo is more accurate color wise. The yarn is a Rhinebeck purchase (of course!). It's Chasing Rainbows sock yarn, and there is no website (of course!). It can be found at Crown Mountain Farms, but I don't see this colorway (of course!). The pattern is my own assortment of bits and pieces of sock making. 2 x 2 ribbing, a little decrease at the ankle, and a Eye of Partridge heel.
I stole these socks early this morning (freshly washed) so I could blog about them. HH walks into the living room, tired and grumpy, "I can't find my socks". Heh heh.
