fo: men's ribbed socks
oh my god, i have had these socks on the needles since may and i am SO happy to have them off. they were so incredibly boring, just ribbing and stockinette. i made them for my dad's birthday in april (procrastinator) so i needed to get them done. it doesn't help that my dad's feet are 11 inches long. whew, done and done.

Nice socks! He'll be very proud of them, even if they are a little late. What is the yarn?

Your dad will LOVE them!!! I've created a husband who will only wear handknit socks...perhaps your dad will be the same way!
