I'm going to finish my husband's socks. I started them back in January and carried them with me to school (I'm a returning to get a second bachelor's person) in my backpack and there they sat for the entire semester!
Susan, While I am not attending school, we have a lot in common. My name is Susan, my husband's name is Larry, and here is the sock I started for him last month, which I stopped because I wasn't satisfied with the heel, and plan on ripping back and trying a different method.
It isn't exactly like yours, but we had the same ideas with the black and gray.
