socks

January 10, 2011

i am horrible at giving presents. my boyfriend knows this, and i’m pretty sure he expects to get his holiday presents practically in november, unless they’re handmade, in which case he’ll get them 6 months late. this year, he got his gift early because i wanted to hang it up – it was a botanical chart illustrating an oak tree from evolution.

so, after giving him the poster, which went over very well and is totally gorgeous, i decided that he really deserved a real present on real christmas. so about a week before christmas, i stopped off at webs and grabbed a skein of blue moon socks that rock mediumweight in “manly, yes, but i like it too”, which is an apt name for that colorway, and managed to finish these just in time.

christmas socks

they’re nice and sturdy – i knit them on size 2 needles, using my basic toe-up sock pattern. hpefully they’ll stand up to a year or two of use.

    Very nice socks! I’ve never been to Webs. I don’t even know where one would be close to me. Haha.
