"H" Has a Sock!

Having discovered the joy of knitting socks, I thought long and hard about what to make out of Tante Paula's inherited wool yarn. She knew H way back when we were just dating and thought the world of him. She used to tell me that H was my "einz und alles" (my one and everything), and she was right. It only seemed a fitting tribute to her to knit a pair of socks for H with her yarn. After much "tinking" (that's knitting spelled backwords, denoting how much I had to rip out), I finally finished the first sock this afternoon.

H models the first of the pair below.

Danke Schoen (Thank you), Tante Paula, you have been much in my thoughts of late!

You made that sock? That looks absolutely perfect! I'm in awe. I can only knit in straight lines, and then, barely.
