A while back, I decided I was going to make socks for my fiance (now husband). He is constantly running holes into his and I was in a sock-making mood.
Well, I tried to adapt a pattern to fit his foot, but it wouldn't go over his heel. He has bony, bony heels, and they protrude far from his ankles, and no matter what I tried I was out of luck.
So, after much agony, I finally decided that I would just have an extra pair of socks for myself that were a little too big and my husband's favorite color!
A few comments on the pattern: I used some sock yarn from Jo-Ann's that didn't really work with this pattern. The striping wasn't profound enough, and so the dew drops looked a bit strange. The pattern was pretty straightforward, though, and fun to knit. I would just use a better quality yarn!
