I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

This past May, I was spending quite a bit of time at the vet office. So, I cast on plain black socks for The Husband because that suited my mood at the time. When they had Sydney in the back running tests, I would occupy my mind with stitch after stitch and not think about worst case scenarios. Thankfully, Sydney pulled through and is ALMOST 100%.

…and The Husband opted for purple heels in his plain black socks. This was super exciting because I’m not a plain black sock kind of girl and he is very much a plain black sock kind of guy.

A happy healthy dog and finished purple heeled socks for The Husband. My cup runneth over!

Ps. I ravelryed my details for the 12W size if you are interested in that type of info.
Pps. Check out what other folks have finished at Tami’s Amis and Fiber Arts Friday!

    I’m so happy hear your furry baby pulled through and is doing well! The purple heel is a great addition to your black socks! They look super cozy!

  3. How long did it take you to knit those socks. One pair takes me minimal a month and that is ignoring everything else.

    I like the colored heel too.

    Glad your dog is doing good.

      I worked on these socks all summer because I only worked on them at the vet office, during previews at movies and while riding in the car until I got to the purple heels. Normally a pair of socks will take me 2-3 weeks. Plain socks for The Husband or my dad take the same amount of time as complicated socks for me. Your walking on sunshine socks look quite a bit more complicated than these. very nice! : )
