Socks fit for a king!
Actually they are socks fit for a Mister King - my boss =D He is such a lovely man, he has had an ex member of staff write a song about him (Mr King by Nerina Pallot) and he has had me make him an irish hiking scarf. Now I have made his socks.

These socks are to be worn each weekend when he goes home to his wife in Scotland and does the gardening. He was pleased with them =D

I used Online Supersocke Winter.

he is a nice boss. He will retire soon I think which will be a sad day for me. I just recently got a raise and a company car (after being headhunted and deciding to stay where I am) and he talked to the chairman about it so he deserved the socks =D
