A week or so ago I finished my husband socks, Ravelry link here. My first pair ever, and I am very pleased. A couple of errors, but hey, that's okay! The main annoyance to me was the fact that because on the second sock the leg and foot were a couple of rows longer the stripes don't match up perfectly and this notices on the toe. This was purely due to me getting carried away knitting and obviously too engrossed in the trash on TV and then not wanting to undo it.
So B, my wonderful husband, here are your foot long socks. It makes me very happy to have knitted them for you, and very happy that you wear them so well. x
