I wish I could say they visited Paris....
These were hubby's Valentines present. He got them with a toe finished, but not kitchnered and a toe not finished at all.
You see I've only knit him 1 pair of socks and since he only wears them at home and not often, no wonder it's been over 3 years! He wore the heel out and they are um..er..acrylic and I'm not even trying to fix them...come to think of it, they are in the black hole of lost knits so I couldn't fix them if I wanted to...(I've lost 2 cowls in the past month :(
Heel pic! I really love the ribbing down the back of the heel.
Got the daughter to model so you could see the neat patterning down the front....
and the back! Eek..I may have ended a heel sooner than the other...oh well ;)

Malabrigo Rios in Paris Night
US 4, magic looped (what else ;)
The yarn is awesome, for those that may not know, it's the superwash, worsted version of Malabrigo. It can be a little bit splitty, but the knitted fabric is awesome.
The pattern is really easy, it looks complicated, but it's not. I'm sure I'll be knitting a pair for me one day...unless hubby doesn't wear his, then I'll reknit the toes smaller ;)
ETA: Irishgirlieknits patterns are 20% off until Tuesday the 22!
