FO Friday 56


Happy Friday, everyone! I hope everyone has fun weekend plans upcoming. I'm not sure what we're going to do, but hopefully the heat will break! It was hot again yesterday, which I can't complain too much, as it is good beach weather. The bad thing about the heat is that I finally finished my husband's very warm socks!

He's so happy to have them finished that he even wore them the night I finished, despite it being like 95 degrees that day. I'm so glad that he loves them, but man men's socks are big! I'm currently making a second sock for myself (as you saw on WIPW), and it's going SO much faster. Luckily, the next few pairs I have to make are for women. LOL

Materials:

Knit Picks Imagination in Frog Prince

Needles: US Size 2
Pattern: I made it up myself, making a basic sock with 72 sts








Milo looks SO uninterested, doesn't he? He just wanted to go to bed at this point




Share your FOs!

  1. YAY, congrats on finishing the socks! :D So I guess there will be no more complaints about one cold foot or anything? ;)

    I wish I could say it's faster to make socks for myself, but my feet are only about a half inch shorter than my father's. *sigh*

    Happy weekend!

  9. Oh my gosh, of course the socks ended up getting finished during a heatwave, LOL. I've loved those since we first saw them many WIP Wednesdays ago, and they turned out just as amazingly as they started! I'm so glad your husband loves them---and that you get to stick to smaller socks for the next little while, too. ;)

  11. The socks are great! You are so lucky to have a knit-worthy husband. Putting the socks on right away and keeping them on is so nice.

  14. Milo does seem to be unimpressed by the handknitted socks -- good thing your husband appreciates them :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  16. I have smaller-man-sized feet, so yes, it does suck knitting larger socks. Look good though!

  17. LOL! I was just going to say something about the PJs when I came to Milo's long suffering look! I get a lot of that when I have to stay up to finish a round or a repeat, or graft something or .... well, you know!
