I finished these in March but am quite proud of them! I managed to line up the pattern really well. Pattern is Cable Rib Socks from the Interweave Favorite Sock Book. The yarn is Opal Hedwig.

Ooh, very nice socks! You did a wonderful job of matching the pattern. Love the yarn - very masculine looking.

Those are really great socks!
I had back surgery 2 years ago and every time I had a follow up appointment I'd have my knitting with me, usually knitting socks. My surgeon always commented on what I was doing and I often wondered if it would be appropriate to knit him a pair of socks as a sort of "thank you" for giving me my life back...until the surgery I could barely stand for more than 10 minutes at a time. He's a young guy and wore some pretty "out there" suits so I thought I'd knit him a pair of "out there" socks. I think he'd probably wear them if I made them for him. I kind of casually looked at his feet to see what size he would need...should I?

My late mother always said one should never give a gift of clothing that one would feel uncomfortable or are not entitled to remove from them yourself!!! (eg. G-string to your boss) I think socks would be OK in your situation, you could put a little note with them thanking him and explaining the significance of the socks.

Dad is 84 and has quite swollen ankles. If he buys socks he immed gets a pair of scissors and cuts a gash in the ribbing so it is not too tight! Hand knitted are much better for him.
