I'm married to a fisherman.

He would fish every day if he could.

Fishing makes him happy.

Hand knit socks make him happy too.

Perhaps this pair will become his "lucky" fishing socks. However, I've been told luck has little to do with it.

By the way, I just took a count of all the socks I've made since I learned to knit and this is pair number 12.

  1. Nice socks. Dan has wanted to learn how to fly fish forever. I had him all set up to take a weekend class when we were at Ft. Campbell, KY but then he deployed. It's my first order of business when we get to NY. There has to be some great fly fishing up that way.

  3. I love the socks. Seeing your manly socks only makes me more determined to make hubby a pair of socks. He wears cowboy boots so I will have to make them boot socks. Green is my favorite color so you know the Green Sock Knit Along is right up my alley! I am hoping to catch up with your 12 pairs of socks. Tonight is my last sock class so hopefully I will have a finished pair to show soon; green of course!

  7. You know, I've always enjoyed fishing, too! It really is a lot of fun. In the summer, the kids and I often grab our gear and go sit by the river or lake and fish. We never catch anything we can take home, but that's okay. They like it - even when they only catch little 4-inch babies! :-)
