These socks are my latest secret Christmas knitting project. Just a plain pair of socks, nothing fancy for two reasons: 1) Christmas is only 7 days, 13 hours and 25 mins away and I still have other gifts to knit and 2) These are for a man and honestly I don't think he is going to care if they have a fun cable pattern on them or not. I think he'll be happier unwrapping a finished pair of plain, warm hand knit socks instead of a fancy unfinished pair.
But because men have such big feet I really wanted to find a foot that I could use to try them on. It took a little talking but I found a somewhat willing foot model (who I must say needs to learn to appreciate the fine art of photography - finding the right pose, lighting and angle takes time! Any guesses who my model was ?)
The foot is half finished and I'm hoping, really, really hoping that I can finish it tonight. I have a scarf and a pair of mitts waiting to be cast on.
