Some years ago, I made them both socks. At the time, it was for a bit of a laugh, but every winter, the socks came out. Jonathan is now doing tree work, so he loved his thick socks to wear in his chainsaw boots. Trouble is, they were no longer thick, he'd managed to wear out the heel and balls of his feet, hence the request for more socks.
This is the first pair done. These are extra long, they'll be folded down when worn and the rib makes them lovely and cosy.
One pair down, and at least two more to go.
