I limped to the finish of the Ravelympics with just inches of yarn left and cramped hands. But I made it! Here are my Ravelympic Boyfriend (really "Hubby") Socks. I didn't think I'd make it, because every time I asked my husband to try on the first sock, he kept saying, "If it's not too much trouble, I really like my socks longer."  Shocked This all the while our 14-year-old keeps telling him he looks like "a geek" and needs to wear shorter socks.  Undecided I wanted him to have the socks just right for him, but I was a little nervous about enough yarn. I just squeezed by.  Cheesy

This pattern was well written and easy to follow, even though I had never wrapped to make short rows before. I also was very happy with the colorway on the yarn and how it showed off the cables.

Here they are and congrats to all you other Ravelympic knitters. I was so impressed with the effort, creativity, and speedy knitting.

The cables look fantastic! I really like the yarn you used, and they look very comfy Smiley

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.
