Alan’s Socks

Last year I started to knit my hubby a pair of socks, I had one finished by his birthday in May, but not the other, so I promised him they would be ready for Christmas.!!!
It is beginning to look like he will get them for this years birthday, I am finally down to shaping the toe, but guess what? it looks like I am going to run out of wool, he has large feet and so takes more wool than a normal pair of socks. I refuse to buy a ball just for one inch of sock, so he might have to put up with a different colour toe on that foot.
Anyway, I will let you know how I get on with them.
This is a picture of them so far.alans-socks.jpg

Update, 🙂 socks finished, Mum came to the rescue and sent me some leftover wool that matched perfectly. Alan is finally wearing them.
