Real Man's Survivial Guide

Yesterday, 1/28/2007 in SALT LAKE CITY, UT: 31 high, 7 low

ValleyairfromthehigherelevationsisthickuBlueblueskiesofsnowbirdinjanuary What does a real man do when the air of January is (in)edible, unhealthy and unbreathable?  He follows the suggestion of Utah's Motto "Life Elevated" and takes off for higher elevations.  He fills his lungs with clean, crisp mountain air and enjoys the bright blue sky at Snowbird.

ArealmanhasabigolheapofbreakfastArealmanwearswarmbootsandhemshisownpants A real man eats a big ol' pile of hardy breakfast, with strong black coffee (ok, with an added bit of cream and a touch of sugar), and stares with love into the eyes of his charming and talented wife. He knows the value of all things good and has worn his favorite cap, from the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics, for years.  A real man knows how to dress for the cold, wears warm boots and pants he hemmed himself ( his secret is iron -on seam tape).

A real man wears warm wool socks, hand knit by his very talented and loving wife. 


He also knows just how special his real socks are.  He is a real smart man.

A real man is smart enough to marry a very special woman. :)

The socks look great!

I finished my husband's garter rib socks this weekend....I was pleased how they came out and he is happy to have toasty warm feet. That black walnut worsted looks good - I'll have to keep it in mind.

Those are such great man socks! Jessie did such a good job of a creating a man-friendly colorway that won't bore the knitter to death. Yeah!

Lovely socks for a lovely man ;)

A very smart man - and cool. Very cool.

A very smart man - and cool. Very cool.

Those socks are fantastic! My husband would love a pair...I wonder if I have the stamina to make something that fits his gigantic size 13 feet, though ;)

The yarn you spun in the post above is absolutely lovely. :)

Great socks! He's right to be very pleased with them.

And a real man will take off his shoes and put his stocking-clad feet on ice-cold brick, in order to pose for his wife's photos. He's a keeper!

How sweet! I love that post. Great socks too. I really do like that pattern.
