Just finished one sock for Irishman, the Big-footed Wonder. Unforunately, I don't think I can have the mate finished before he leaves on Sunday ( at 6 am!!) for his big adventure in Boston (dude planned a "business trip" for Boston so that it coincided with St. Patrick's Day - my imagination is going crazy here). I just hope I get him back in one piece ;)
I used the pattern from Nancy Bush's new book Knitting Vintage Socks and adapted my own hard-wearing heel and toe. The poor guy has lost 2 socks this year and I'm hoping to avoid further decisions like the one I am currently facing with the VERY first socks that came of my newbie needles: darn-it or damn-it??
Any voices of experience out there to guide me gently into the toe-repair lane??
