For the first time ever, I decided to join in the Mystery Sock knitalong. As Kirsten of Through the Loops posted her clues, I was knitting along at steady clip. I finished my first sock maybe a day or two after she posted her final clue and cast on for the second sock right away. I thought I would have a finished pair in a matter of days. Then, well, I had to play catch up with the softie machine, and the socks, along with just about everything else in my life, fell by the wayside. Once life settled down a bit and I had some quiet time after the holidays, I was finally able to finish them up. And just in time for Matt’s birthday!

Here is doing what he called a “manly pose.” I have no idea what that means, but it does display the lovely heel. I am a fan of heels that are a continuation of the pattern. Ideally, you want to look good whether you’re coming or going, right? Also, I have to say, I love knitting socks for Matt, even if knitting eight or more repeats for the foot makes me a little twitchy towards the end, just because he appreciates them so much. The fact that he is wearing them now makes me all warm and fuzzy.
