Gentleman's Fancy Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush (sans shaping)
Size 1/12 dpns
Sock! yarn from Lisa Souza's site( in the olive tones colorway.

The socks are fixed. Man! What a baby! It hardly took any time to fix em. Sheesh.

Someone has come to visit in our lake behind our house.

Yay for sock fix! I'm glad you could do it easily.

Look at that beautiful view and with a swan! I'm so jealous.

Well, you got over the frustration and fixed those up quickly - I probably would have thrown them in a corner for weeks before I ripped. I really like that pattern - its going to have to go on the guy-sock list.

Beautiful socks, E!
Our son and DIL live along the St. Joseph river near Constantine. Last summer they had a family of swans -- mom, dad, and seven cygnets. It was very cool.

Nice choice to pair the ribbed pattern with Lisa's yarn (another pretty shade!). Looks lovely and I bet it feels even better on. Is the swan a returnee or wintering over? It's such a strange winter, last week I saw geese flying north already.
