I started knitting the first pair of socks for Summer of Socks 2008 on June 21. I thought this would be breeze but I never counted on the fact that I was knitting manly-man socks. They are SO BIG! On July 3 this is what I had done.
The entries for the first two weeks closed at 10:00 PM July 4. That morning this is what I had.
Not looking very promising. But by the deadline, with a little time to spare I did it!
Mr. Truck now thinks he's a foot model and is demanding pay for future shots, but the socks are for the BIL, Swimming Man. They're done in Trekking pro natura, and I loved the yarn, on size 2 needles. 72 stitches around, I thought I'd never get done. I've since started Monkey socks for me. It's going much quicker. And just for the fun of it, I wanted to show you Reese's new sunglasses.
