First Socks

No, no the first socks I made, but the first pair of socks I ever made for my husband. Actually, the first thing I knit for him since we got married, and the second since I met him. Many year ago, while we were still dating, I made him a humongous yellow cotton aran: did not know about the curse of the boyfriend's sweater, and I guess what does not kill a relationship makes it stronger: we survived.
