Happy Birthday Bob

Today is the 25th time DH Bob has turned 39!

His birthday is 10-2, mine is 1-20. Same digits, same heart, just arranged a little differently.

Happy birthday with lots of love and a pair of socks!

The color was his request - autumn colors with lots of yellow and/or orange. I'm not sure he really wanted this much yellow, but he did ask for it.

Bob likes heavy socks, so I used Bretton, a DK weight 70% superwash wool/25% nylon/5% alpaca yarn knit along with a strand of Opal in autumn colors.

I love the Bretton yarn and was surprised not to find it in the Ravelry database. Did I miss it somehow?

Pattern: Basic sock, p1, k3 ribbing on 48 stitches.

Yarn: Patternworks Bretton in gold along with Opal Herbstmelodie, a handpainted Opal.

Needles: #5 Addi Turbos.

Gauge: 5 stitches/inch.
