Brown Shoes Don’t Make It

I’m really on a roll with my song title titles these days! I’m sure there are some sock-related songs I could find, but for some reason I could only think of this Frank Zappa song right now.

I’m T-12 hours before we travel across the country with 3 kids, so I thought I’d show off one of my many recent FOs. I did finally finish A.’s socks, just in time for Father’s Day, but I had so much yarn left I thought I would make a pair for his son A., but then I ran out mid-pair! So here are my 3 socks I’ve made in the past two years, as I’ve really been uninterested in sock knitting lately.

They’re Manly Socks (named after “Manly”, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s husband? Who knows…) plus one ribbed kid’s sock I’ll probably give to IM.  And there is still sock yarn left!  I decided right after I finished to start another pair of socks, so I’m on the foot of the next pair, which has ended up being a very short crew sock.  I should have those finished when I’m back from NYC next week.  Goal 1: completed!

    Manly, yes, but I like them too!

    Wasn’t his name Alonzo? I’m totally guessing but now I’ll have to look it up.

    Have a great vacation!
