The Gift of a Promise

Like marriage and motherhood, knitting a pair of socks is an enormous commitment. You feel the short-lived satisfaction of completing one perfect sock, followed by the reality of having to start all over again - except in the case of a Christmas stocking.

For Valentines Day I gave my Valentines one sock each and the gift of a promise. A promise of a second sock for Easter.

I used the Briggs & Little Heavy Sock Pattern for Nate's, and the pattern I made up for Angus's was so haphazard that it isn't worth sharing.

Happy Valentines Day!


  1. I love the photo for this entry! With your determination and late nights, you will be able to produce a set of socks for each of your Valentines!

  2. Nate and Angus rarely wear matching socks anyway...
