Grandpa 80 years.

My grandfather turned 80 years last weekend but as usual, he didn't want any gifts. However I knitted him socks. These are actually a bit darker (and our couch is also dark gray).

Pattern: basic sock
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä, brown (687) and red (549)
Needles: 3½ mm DPNs
Size: EU 43

I think these were a pleasent gift. My grandpa got tears in his eyes when I gave these to him. I'm also knitting socks to match these for my grandmother. She was the one who always kept knitting us socks etc but hasn't been able to knit for at least 10 years.
