Son John picked this yarn out for his birthday socks at Harmony Yarn Studio in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. It got shipped here to SW Michigan and will soon be heading back to Idaho as his 2008 birthday socks.
He's been a Washington Redskin fan ever since he was a young lad in SW Michigan. Last year I knit him Redskin red socks, and this year is another variation on the Redskin maroon and gold.
