Monogamy in knitting, that is. Especially when said monogamous knitting is a plain ole stockinette stitch sock.
Hubby told me back in January that "if I wanted to, I could make him some more socks". I took that to mean "I'd love it if you would make me some more socks." That's exactly what he meant, but I was in the middle of a few things at the time so I told him that yes, I'd be happy to make him socks (he doesn't ask for much and he really does love his hand knit socks) but that they'd have to wait until I finished the projects I had going on at the time. I started the first one in January and worked a little on it here and there (key words being "a little").
Finally, I finished the first sock the other day.
Check this out - I worked my first afterthought heel (which is really just another toe where the heel goes).
I was a little unsure how hubby would like the feel of the "toe-heel", but he really likes it and I really enjoyed doing it. I love how the striping pattern doesn't get interrupted.
