Eye of the Tiger.
I'm not the only person in my house who likes to have toasty toes during wintertime activities. Sadly, Mike's collection of knitted socks is small. I started this pair of socks months ago, and I really wanted to finish these before we departed on our trip. Having a deadline is good motivation for a project like this, because GOSH men's socks are an endeavor.
I'm mostly certain that Mike's socks require twice as much knitting as my own, and honestly, I don't enjoy knitting them as much as I enjoy knitting socks for myself. I feel pretty guilty about this, because Mike LOVES his knitted socks and puts in requests for more on a semi-regular basis. Somehow, they always land at the bottom of my priority list.
These are Syncopation Socks knit in Wollmeise Sockenwolle. The pattern gets a bit lost in the color scheme, and there's more pooling than suits my preferences, but this is a solid, basic sock pattern. Typically, I would wait a year before knitting Mike another pair of socks, but during my assessment of my own collection, I decided I could let him jump queue. Since, it's my habit to always take a pair of socks to knit during flights I got a jump on his next pair already, which means he's another day closer to that full sock drawer.
