FO: Big Manly Husband Socks
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.

MANLY, YES! But I like them too (remember the Irish Spring commercial years ago?).

Great job!

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...

Well done they are awesome!!!!!
