When I found out my ex had been in Iraq since May, I wanted to knit him some socks. He still needs some comfortable wool socks even if he's not in the military.
I called and emailed his wife to make sure it was okay for me to make them. She gave me the thumbs up and so my journey began.
I used my antique sock knitting machine to knit the ribbed legs. Next, I put them on US sz 1's to knit the feet.............all the way to a size 13 shoe!
