I gave my pal Nigel the yarn for these socks (am forgetting what it was…a German yarn, with aloe in it)  for his birthday in October, and this afternoon he sent me these photos of the finished socks which he will wear to the Christmas Eve festivities in Puerto Vallarta, where he and Geordie are spending the winter. (I’m not a sock knitter, but that heel looks really nicely done to me…)

He thoughtfully sent photos of the rest of his ensemble so we could see how well the colours of the socks go with his pale orange shorts, 

And with the green bird-of-paradise flowered shirt. 

It’s a wonderful outfit!
