Dude has two never-ending socks

And let me just say this hard working man deserves all the hand-knit socks in the world. Heck, he even deserves a sweater! Maybe that's next. Did I just say I want to knit another sweater? Ken said, "Jeez, it's like childbirth! You women forget the agony and just do it all over again." heh

He -loves- them. To him, they match perfectly. They don't squeeze his calves and no one will ever see them except at the ankle. And what does he care? His wife (lovely woman that she is) hand-knit him a pait of socks. Nearly fifty THOUSAND stitches. That, my friends, is true love.

What am I going to bitch about knit next? :D

*ahem*... allow me...
1.) the 'Modern Quilt Wrap'
2.) a pair of socks for Yourself
3.) mitts for the boy-child
4.) a bad-ass sweater for Fat Boy, 'cuz dude's a little short in the fur department... needs a skull and bones on it, fer shur
5.) a man-sized sweater (NOT a cardigan, and possibly just a VEST) for the Crocker Man who rebuilds truck-guts in his "spare time".
See, you never have to ask the question of what to knit next. Should we pile them into a hat and draw out a name?
Those socks are an amazing labor of love. I can just imagine him peering down at his ankles on bad days and smiling about how much you really like him! C

Those are Socks that Rock! Seriously. I LOVE the bit of blue in them with the blue in the blue jeans! Very Well Done Melly Woman!!!

Ta Da.... wondermus! You did good. Such a feeling of accomplishment. I would wear those - maybe not THOSE, I could get both feet in one, but that Color. I'm sure Kenski beams with happiness at his new socks. Let me add to Cami's list - a pair of socks for Robin. Maybe not...just wishing.. (get off your butt and finish your own pair Robin)
Happiness to you, Robin

Melly, that is indeed true love. They are absolutely gorgeous and I know from fondling, er, handling in person that they are soft. You're spoiling him! ;)

B-E-A-utiful! And seriously, if you can knit a pair of 50,000 stitch socks in 90% stockinette, you can do ANYTHING!
