Feeling when husband turns from packing to leave town for big stressful important business meeting to ask whether his new socks might be done in time so he can wear them for good luck?
(Needless to say, I stayed up to finish them before he left town.)
Project details: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga (can't remember the colorway, but it's a stunning dark dark blue). Size two needles. Toe up socks, nothing fancy, just some 2x2 ribbing at the top. I made them so that the legs and feet are the same length when they're folded in half (my standard), but there was some yarn left over, so I might pull out the cast off and add a bit more length when he gets home, we'll see.
*Edited to add: Per sock.
