Don't worry, no socks-with-sandals faux pas were incurred as part of this photo shoot. Mike is a great sport and was willing to model his birthday socks, on his birthday, which we spent in the best place, EVER, to spend a birthday.
Pattern: Globe Trotter Socks by Jodie St. Clair
Yarn: 858 Arbol from the Malabrigo sock Collection
Needles: Addi Lace US2
We're pretty sure onlookers thought we were shooting for some sort of fetish publication... sickos. At any rate, these were on and off in about 30seconds to avoid embarrassing tan lines, so not a lot of photo coverage. They do fit perfectly, and he is pleased with them.
After we'd finished soaking up some sun, we celebrated with birthday bolo while watching the sun set and smoking Cuban cigars. Not too shabby for '29'. Happy BIRTHDAY, baby! I love you!
