Birthdays Are For Socks
You may recall from previous years that - being a man sound in mind and spirit - my dad is a fan of handknit socks. Earlier this year he dropped the subtle hint that he thought his socks collection was a little low. In particular, he requested bright socks. Think these will do?
I have it on good authority that he likes them:
The socks are the softest, smoothest I've ever worn. you have me spoiled.
I would like to wear them with my Tux on April 12. They are green and will match my Green vest, your Mom's dress, etc.
They are black and will match the Tux; they are Navy, and will match the rest of the bridal party.
Your Mom rightfully so, suggested that I run this by you for your permission, as it is your day, and the uniformity will be somewhat askew, if my socks aren't a BORING black. (PS-- even though I am asking, If you say NO, I won't follow your advice!)
Dad's Birthday Socks
Pattern: basic stockinette stitch
Yarn: Regia stripe I picked up in Germany a couple of years ago
Needles: US 1
Notes: None. Regia is by far my favorite of the "regular" sock yarns - soft, wears like iron, and comes in great colors.
Best Thing About This Project: They'll be coming to my wedding.*
*For those of you confused about my marital status, rest assured that my husband and I are happily, legally married. Due to the joys of being a dual military couple, the church-y-reception-y part is separated in space and time from the rest and is coming up in April.
