Made his Brown Eyes Blue

I finished the Brown Eyes Blue Christmas socks for First Love at the weekend.

Of course he saw me knitting them and knows they are for him, but played along with the pretence that they were for a mystery recipient! He loves the colours - especially the "sparkle" in the blue caused by occasional tiny undyed patches.

These are the Gentleman's Winter Socks from "Knitting Vintage Socks" (Nancy Bush), hand-dyed bfl from Old Maiden Aunt - if you are quick she has one skein left in her shop! 2.5mm needles.
