:waving: Hey Knitty Buddies! I've knit another pair of socks for my Honey! These were knit with SWTC TOFUtsies (I LOVE THIS YARN!) on size 1 circs (although I wrote the pattern for the more universal dpns).http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_musicmansocks3_edited-1.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/musicmansocks3_edited-1.jpg) Lonnie is a singer and guitar player, thus the Music Man Socks (http://whimsicalknittingdesigns.blogspot.com/2007/05/music-man-socks-pattern.html)! http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_musicmansocks2.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/musicmansocks2.jpg) This is an easy, quick knit and the yarn makes the socks perfect for the man that must wear socks during hot weather! The soysilk in the yarn wicks moisture away from the body, the yarn was actually cool to the touch as I was knitting the socks! Can't wait to knit some for me :wink: but, I have about 27 or so more pair to knit for Lonnie before I knit any for me, LOL! I have created a handknit sock junkie! He loves them and only wears handknit socks now, that makes me so happy and proud :mrgreen:

The socks are gorgeous! Lonnie is spoiled, but I know you get spoiled in return!

Thanks so much, ya'll! LOL, I'm far more spoiled than Lonnie, but I'm trying to catch up!!

Thanks everyone! I love knitting socks for my Honey, but I am now going to do a girl's sock design and then get back to knitting man socks!

Thanks for asking, Julie, I'm okay, I guess...leg/hip seem to be getting worse (as we knew would happen) but I'm okay, this just keeps me pretty much house bound! I'm very blessed to have such a wonderful family and group of friends, though, couldn't ask for more than that :cheering:

:pout: Well, Becka, I guess the upside to that is we have you around here more, and we can count on you getting more time for your wonderful sock patterns!!! :muah: I'll keep you in my prayers, dear friend! :hug:

You are so sweet! There are many upsides! I'm so blessed, in so many, many ways! Wow, I couldn't ask for more than I have :inlove: So I live in pain...big wooo! I'm living and loving it! And I'm blessed to have such wonderful friends like you! I, too, keep you and yours in my daily prayers and I want to thank you so very much for doing the same for me, that means a lot...well, you know, LOL!

As for sock patterns, I'm working on a lady's pattern now, it's a nice change, but I must get back to those for my Lonnie! now that is sheer joy, seeing the look on his face when I give him a new pair of socks and then showing him the website with the pattern on it, all for him! I'm so proud, he told me he shows off both the socks and the websites at work...I'm so lucky :inlove:
