from Boyfriend Sweaters: 19 Designs for him that you'll want to wear
I made probably the worst mistake you could make when making something like this... I did not make a swatch. I paid for it! Next time. It still came out fine. Lesson learned.
This is my first attempt at socks. I made them about 5 years ago, before I knew anything about making socks, not that I know that much about them now. They are knit with a seam that must be sewn instead of in the round. LOL. I initially made these for my mother in law before finding out she didn't like pink. I instead made her the Beaded Teal Scarf in my projects and kept the sock for myself.
Though they didn't win, I'm sure it was a valiant attempt!
Just a little Something..... :-)
Something Interesting! http://westknits.com/index.php/2013/11/swants-tutorial/
I am so glad I have something done. This feels good and also a sigh of relief! Now on to the next one.
I thought some might enjoy this :-)
My husband took up knitting a few years ago when it was undergoing a bit of a resurgence. He's always loved making things, he's a very fussy knot-tier from his days in the Navy, and I think the incongruity of a man like him knitting (he's kind of a man's man) appealed to him, too.
