FO - DH's Valentine Socks
OK, so where's the drum roll? My DH's Valentine Socks are finished. The grafting went MUCH better on the second sock than they did on the first sock. These things even LOOK like socks! WOW, I did it!!!

Sorry ladies and gents, my model is at work. These things sure as heck are not gonna fit me, so I laid them flat on the table to take a picture of them. First I stuffed them with water bottles, but that looked weird because the legs sat nicely but the feet were flat. Anyways, these pics will have to do!

Now for the pictures.....

Great job! The socks are beautiful, or I guess I should say handsome. I'm so impressed with how well the stripes line up - looks like a perfect match to me.
