I had already begun this pair of socks, almost ready to turn the heel on the first sock when a friend asked me to knit a pair of socks for her husband – she’d pay me of course. As always, the problem is the cost of a pair of my socks – I simply won’t work for less than $1 an hour!
As I turned the heel I realized I could just make a longer foot and then I’d have socks for Edouard. They’ll go in the mail to him today. As a gift.
