Another Christmas installment! These are my big brother's socks. And now while looking at all the pictures, I realize you can't really see the socks, just our goofiness. They are knit from Lorna's Laces 'Fall Flight', which also happen to match the University of MN colors where my brother got his masters.
While I've knit many socks for various people, my brother was the first to actually wear holes into his pair. Granted they were knit from woolease on bigger needles, but still a compliment in my eyes.
Perhaps because every knitter worries if the recipient will value their time and thought that went into the knit, if the recipient will actually really wear the knitted piece, or maybe it was just a compliment because I have never known what to give my brother. (I am not one of those people gifted with the 'that is the perfect gift for so-and-so' knowledge). So, from now on I will gift my brother with socks. And in making this statement, I bet it will be really hard for him to figure out what he is getting for his upcoming birthday....hehe.
In the pictures you can see my brother and Z showing off his new socks (and her non-knitted socks, which will soon be fixed with the most perfect socks...hehe), Z taking a picture of his socks and her resulting picture.
