Heya Jouf, ya I'm up for the sock thang! Have done socks before so it won't be too hard but I'm interested in his technique (i.e never use another pattern again!)
Just bought some bargain yarn at my LYS tonight and I'm so excited! I'm going to do some slippers for my husband so he'd better like them! I may also make some slippers out of the Storm Aran I have for myself. Of course, I told myself no new projects until I'm done the blanket and the cardigan!!
The scarf I did was pretty easy actually, what a relief! I used a cable needle but found it was a very quick knit. I am going to do another one for my dad so!
Holly, you're right! A lot of men here ask me why knit when you can just get it in the shops?! Like they just don't appreciate the hard work and love that goes into a handknit project! The only reason my husband likes his scarf (so he says) is that he can brag how warm he is on site when the other lads are freezing! But deep down I know he's just full of pride and appreciation for my handiwork.....snicker.
