What do you do to show your appreciation for someone you love? Specifically, for the guy in your life?

Well. First you buy him a snow blower.

But then, if you’re a knitter, you knit him socks.

He may still have to go out there and clear the snow . . .

But at least his feet will be warm.

    I can’t get over how happy Dale looks while shoveling in the frigid cold; it must be because his feet are so warm and toasty!

    Ah, socks for the guy…..a mixed review here. Four pairs so far: three pair of heavy wool socks, one of them beautifully cabled, to wear with leather clogs (these are not beloved); and one pair of fine gray dress socks also with cables that took forever to knit and were well received. So, the good gray dress socks were promptly worn inappropriately, under boots, for a hike – and worn through on the backs of the heels the first day. I give up.

    Hmmm… I admit now to feeling a little guilty about Rudi’s pair of socks. I gave them to him last Christmas still on the needles, just in need of a bind off, and that’s where they still sit in their bag. Maybe I’ll finish them off tonight and hand them over a second time as a belated Valentine’s Day present…

    What would we ever do without our heroes? Someone once asked me why I bothered to knit socks since they’re hidden and you can’t see them – and after all, you can buy them in a store. I said hand knit socks are like homemade bread for your feet! She didn’t get it…but knitters do! :)
