I managed to finish Michael’s Gentleman’s Fancy Socks right before we left for our family vacation. They are obviously from two different skeins, but neither of us care. I’m just glad it’s done. Michael remarked to me the other day that he’s happy he has so many hand knitted socks because now he doesn’t have to care when/how much he wears them because he knows he’ll always have more. After I knitted his first pair of Jaywalkers, I forbade him to wear it all the time. Now I’m hoping he does so that he can wear all these new socks that I’m churning out. Too bad he refuses to wear lace patterns because then he would have a WHOLE LOT of new socks.

You mean, if Michael wore lace patterned socks he’d have a HOLE lot more! ;-)
How did you like it at the Handarbeitsstubn?

These came out very nice! I love the color and the pattern. You are a sock making machine.

Wow, Kris, die sind aber schÃ¶n geworden!!
Ja, Du hast vollkommen Recht mit den Lace-Patterns – mein Mann wÃ¼rde auch VIEL mehr Socken von mir bekommen, wenn das mal in Mode kÃ¤me…
So muss er halt damit leben, dass ich mir Socken stricke (obwohl er das ja auch tut *g*).

The socks are fabulous! That colorway is wonderful… I just saw Jitterbug for the first time in an email a yarn store sent me… I am sorely tempted, but will have to wait till I use up all my other sock yarn. Don’t I?

Wonderful socks! This pattern is on my list. Just tripped over from Ravelry where we evidently share several patterns! I’m going to check out all your socks!
