Guy Socks

Back in December I cast on a pair of socks for Dan. 3 months later, I have finished!
Dan's Socks
The pattern is Manhattan, by Lisa Dykstra, and is really fantastic in its simplicity. There is some stretch and it works well with the variegated yarn.

The yarn, by the way, is Intention Yarns in the "Simplicity" colorway, a club special. At first I was not into this colorway at all but Dan spotted it on the table and admired it, so, the guy gets his socks. I like it a lot better now that it has been knit up. I still have a little more than 15 grams left (I had made Dan a mini-sock ornament out of this yarn for Christmas), so I'm thinking about working on some "boy booties" for a friend who recently had a little boy.

Color goes nicely with our house dachshund, don't you think?

It looks like the socks match the couch too. Love the dog and sock pic!

Love it! When we were in DC with no outdoor space, I used to fill a water table with all different kinds of dry beans for Ian to play with...hours of fun for him, me, the cat, and the vacuum!

It's been too long...so let this message mark the beginning of my lobbying campaign for you all to come up for the Curious George exhibit in Boston. We're very kid friendly for an overnight :)
