Dyeing, spinning, and knitting a pair of socks for someone who gets it and gets as excited in receiving as I do in giving.

Gentleman's Fancy Sock stitch pattern, toe up PGR style with a short row heel...

Those are some hot socks. And your PGR heels are super-sexy in a knitterly sort of way. Mine are always full of holes. I'm jealous.
