M.A.N Socks

I have been slaving away making these "Globe Trotter" socks for my brother in law for Christmas. I drew his name out of the hat for secret Santa this year and thought i would make him some socks!
The pattern looks really styli for man socks but it is BORING! i really struggled with the constant seed stitch. I shoul have done what some friends suggested and cast on something else to work on when i got bored instead of torturing myself. I will do that next time!
They look great though! haha

I got to try out my spiffy new sock blockers too! A knitting night last night i was mentioning how i needed some and Sheryl whips out some plastic place mats and her blockers to trace around and voila! D.I.Y sock blockers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are my hero! Those are great . . . I'm scared of socks, totally scared.

Merry Christmas!
