These socks have taken me forever to knit. I think its been at least 6 months. They started off as socks for me, then Dick claimed them for himself. I hate knitting guys size feet. Size 11 shoes are pretty big compared to my size 7.1/2 womens. I dyed this yarn when I first moved into our flat. I'm very happy with the way it knit up. I didnt notice any big pooling, which is good!

My boring ribby socks formula

Toe-up (short-row)
2 socks on 1 circ.
2x2 rib
after thought heel

I also blocked my gray sweater. Holy Crap!!! It grew alot. I want to make the collar longer and I have to re-knit the button band again. I'm still not happy. It's still drying. I need a big button band. I don't like the dinky one I knit on their. I do love these pearly buttons I found in my grandma's button stash.
