Sock it to me Beatrix!

My model agreed to have his feet on show on the blog, but i had to promise not to show his face!!

Apparently the socks are really nice and comfy and do keep his tootsies cosy and warm. A request has been made for a second pair so when these are in the washbasket he has another pair to wear on winter evenings. How many ladies can say their hubby will wear things they knit? It might not be such a good idea though as he is talking about a new sweater, that will definately interfere with stitching time LOL

End of another month and time to see how Beatrix has grown in September, 4 motifs added this month, only 6 more to a happy dance of this one. All of the other stitching projects for this month were accomplished too so all in all a good month craft wise. Time to update the sidebar for October and start to plan things that need to be stitched for Christmas.
