The charade is almost over

At least the first one is! I have made it down to the end of the gusset decreases and I am counting the rows until I can bind off and have Craig try it on! I think I am more excited about this than my hubby is but then again, as this is his first handknit, (I know, I know, I should be ashamed of myself) he can't yet comprehend what the perfect fit of a handknit sock feels like. I love working with the Fixation, although I am glad I went with a very subtle pattern because complicated stitch pattern don't seem like they would show up very well in this kind of yarn.

Wahey! I love the countdown to cast off!!!!

Beware - once your hubby has experienced the handmade sock there is no going back!

your blog is looking snazzy. So are all of the wips you have got going on. Your hubby will be ordering up a whole bunch more hand knits after those socks!!

Oh, I warn you, once he wears this pair he wants more hand knit socks.
And he starts wearing yours! Like my husband does. regarding what color and I am sure he is not colorblind!
