I shall be making a secret pair of these for my husband, if I can wangle some time without him watching. Beautiful work!
(I fell in love with him the evening I saw him perform with his old band The Pendulums in Glasgow, Halloween 2007. He was dressed as a gnome, in green tights, a green polo neck shirt, a red hat and red felt shoes that he's made himself. This pattern reminds me of that very much!)
