I know the gentleman and his fair companion, who is of my acquaintance (hence the socks in the first place), like hiking or walking or similar, so I hope these will come in handy.
But it finally occured to me that with all of the moving action that will be taking place in the coming weeks, I really need to get these finished. I turned the heel yesterday and carried on down the foot. Today I hope to keep going and graft the toe, so that these can be dropped off on one last trip into campus on Monday.
It would be a farewell lap, but the place gives me hives. So it will just be a very quick and purpose-oriented visit.
