boring socks ie my husbands socks


boring sock 2

DH is diabetic so when I started to make these socks using information from book "New Pathways for Sock Knitters" I was a bit concerned about how rough they might be on the inside. So I had him try them on so we could see how the increases felt. The good news is that even with me rubbing right on the increases he could not feel them.

Grin the bad news is he asked how many socks I was going to knit for him. I thought he meant if I was making the second one for the pair NOPE he meant how many PAIRS was I going to knit for him! I was nice I told him I would knit them until I ran out of sock yarn. ROFL he went out and bought me four clear storage bins for the sock yarn. Considering I only have enough to fill ONE bin I guess he is going to be buying more for me ;)



In other news the Queen Anne's Lace is coming along nicely after a trip to the frog pond after I discovered I was missing a section. Sigh that was disheartening. The best part is that now it is past that point and looking better then the original version on the US 6 needles. I really, really like these Harmony needles. Grin I have added the complete set to my wish list.
