Fortunately I had begun Retro Ribs sock back in July...2010 so I grabbed them with only the foot of one to do and both toes. So it went quickly and my father had the gift he wanted !
Pattern Retro Rib socks by Evelyn A.Clark from the book Favorite socks
Yarn : Knit Picks Stroll solid in Pine color about 1.5 ball I guess
Easy I don't know why I did not finish right away last year...probably I had a startisis crisis !
