...because, although I have a new found enthusiasm for one, I could never stop loving the other..
...and that means a new page in The Big Brown Notebook Of Socks..
...for my first pair of manly man socks: a UK size 10 knitted in Drops Fabel Grey/Brown print from the basic pattern in Ann Budd's Getting Started Knitting Socks
Yes making a page in my notebook was just as much fun as knitting the socks. I added some Crate Paper and Shimelle diecuts, Simple Stories alpha stickers, a stamp from Gossamer Blue and gold accents, including a big coffee splat stamp I've had for years. Manly, see?
I've noted that I did the tops and heel flaps in plain grey. Next time I might leave the heel patterned and knit the toe in a plain.
After all, I've got to keep it interesting. I have a whole notebook to fill...
