Yesterday was a very special day for Mr Soaring Sheep because he turned 30 :-) I had promised him a new pair of socks but said I didn't think they'd be finished for his birthday. Luckily for me he was working away from early Monday morning until Wednesday evening so that gave me plenty of opportunity to knit the second sock. He arrived home just as I was starting to weave in the ends.
I managed to persuade him to give the children a long play-bath that evening so had around an hour uninterrupted to weave in all the ends. I didn't have time to block them or even wrap them up but he was very chuffed when I presented them to him :-)
You can see his new birthday trousers in that picture too lol. I knitted the socks cuff down with an afterthought heel. Unfortunately with the second cuff (the green one) I not only cast on two too few stitches but I also cast on a bit too tightly as well. Luckily thanks to some brutal stretching and Mr Soaring Sheep's skinny ankles they fit just fine
He's a very happy boy, and I'm looking forward to some more leisurely paced knitting next week!
Linking up with Fibre Arts Friday and Creative Friday. Thanks for visiting :-)
