Saga of the Never Ending Socks...Ends?

Asalam Alaikum,
This is the end of my most long-term FO! Tariq's "Forever Socks" are done, and it only took two and a half years!

Pattern-Wendy's Generic Toe-Up Sock"
Yarn-Olive Green sock yarn that came with a kit the Mom gave me when we were visiting.
Needles-US 1

This pair of socks has been on the needles since the summer of 2008. They went with me to the first U-knitted Amiras meeting in Abu Dhabi in September of 2008. These socks have been all over the UAE and have gone on our Omani Border Runs a couple of times, and has come to Pakistan twice. These are some well traveled socks!

Never again will I make socks for Tariq with anything less than a sport weight yarn. NEVER. EVER.
