These are less handsome than the first pair of these knit in red and grey for him but they expand My Beloved's "collection" of cozy, tough cottage socks and for that, he's thrilled.

It was Father's Day over the weekend but we also celebrated his Birthday so it seemed fitting the knitting I did was on something for him.

Being  interested (when its for him) in my knitting (when its for him) he quite enjoyed following the progression (since it was for him) from assembly of possible yarn from the remnant basket through the knitting and trying on to the sewing in of ends.

In fairness the man "listens" to a massive number of  knitting "stories" and he does so with a convincing amount of attention. But when I'm knitting for him there's an unmistakable element of genuine engagement.
So with lots of trying on - unnecessary but when I can get his attention I can't resist - the fit is quite perfect. But this week he's out of town so they're modelled here on my (thankfully) smaller feet.
Kind of novel compared to the last FO with his name on it!

With My Beloved away its great I still have lots of "help" with photography etc?!
Thanks for dropping by!

Oh - Glad to her it is you modelling. Thought for a moment that your beloved shaved his legs. :) Not that there is anything wrong with that. :):)
