My husband said I could knit some socks for him if I wanted which really meant he wanted me to. So how could I turn him down?!
These are the Slipped Stitch Rib socks from SKS. I used KP Essential and #0 dpns. They took a long time (a lot bigger than my little socks!!) but came out great.

Wow...size 0 needles! It must have taken a long time, but well worth it, because they are beautiful socks!
I can't show my hubby though, 'cause he's wondering where his are...:roflhard: :roflhard:

Size 0!! I can't even imaging knitting socks for any of the guys I know with zeros! They all have really big feet.
Well done they are awesome!!!!!

They look great! My DBF chose grey sock yarn for his socks too- why do they pick the most boring colour?

Thank you! He wore them yesterday and seemed to have happy feet and a smile on his face. Guess I'll knit some more for him.

Thank you . Crazy, I know, but if I use #1 on KP Essential the fabric is just too darn floppy. (I am a loose woman, :oo: , I mean knitter and always must go down 1 or 2 sizes)
