My favorite present I’ve ever received. These socks. My wife made them for me by hand. The fit is perfect, 100% merino wool is fantastic and the bicycles on them are great. Can they get any better?....She even spun the yarn herself. Wow.
These socks mean an incredible amount to me. Just imagine, every single strand of yarn, came in a big pile, passed delicately and precisely through her fingers, being twisted from a loose fiber, to a strong strand. Then, after making a whole whack of the yarn, She painstakingly knits the socks together with needles made of wood. 4 or 5 needles being used at any given time. I tried knitting once, but I could not imagine how to make designs, and make socks that fit like they were formed around the foot that would wear them. In very few items have I ever seen craftsmanship and quality like this. And, she did it all for me. I’ve never felt so special while wearing any garment as I do when I wear these socks. Life is good. So is my sweet Wife!
