My own little brand of political action...

The DH has returned to the bargaining table to help hash out the new agreement twixt the teachers and the school district. Last year's negotiations were tough (the girls attended their first ever picketing session) and, since pink is the power color for the union, I designed these little beauties for him to wear as he sees fit:

We have been calling them the "Stickin' It To The Man" socks. It's hard to tell from the photo, but they read UNITY down the ankle. These are also my January entry for the Sock a Month KAL.
They were knit in Dale of Norway Baby Ull, color #4504 which is a nice, bright, Pepto Bismol pink. Needles used were size US 2, and the pair took 2 50g balls with some left over. I finished them just in time for negotiations to start, and I truly hope he will never have to wear them, but they are ready "Just in Case."

Awesome! But what I really want to see is a picture of your husband modeling them. Preferably NOT on a picket line, though...
