It’s no secret that my favorite person, hands down, is my husband. We’ve known each other since we were 15 years old (we met after taking a matchmaker test on Valentine’s Day in High School) and while it may have taken us a few years longer than expected to get our lives in order, we were married in 2008.
I think my favorite person deserves another pair of handmade socks - one that is as unique as he is. I call these Mister Invested because when this charming man “invested” in me, he wore a vest (no, really… no suit jacket for our wedding… a vest).
These would be wonderful for women’s socks as well - so don’t let the name fool you. It’s quite likely that the Hubbs and I will be that cheesy old married couple with matching socks!
