Rubber Socks?

DH: "Is this rubber?"
ME: (I glance up from my knitting & notice DH is pulling & stretching on the top ribbing of my completed sock. I give him a strange look but don't respond.)
DH: "Is there rubber in here?"
ME: (I start laughing so hard I think I may pee my pants!)
DH: "Well how does it do this?" he inquires while stretching the ribbing back & forth.
ME: (I continue laughing fighting back the tears & explain how it works which in no way requires me to knit with rubber.)

Well my socks are FINALLY done & I promise I will never knit them again. I frogged them more times than I am willing to admit to myself. I'm not quite sure what the biggest problem was, but for only being my 2nd pair of socks EVER, I probably shouldn't complain too much. I figure...third time's the charm (and it should be since I'll be knitting the Jaywalkers)

rubber - hee hee! This is only your second pair of socks! It took me about four pair of plain stockinette to quit making MAJOR mistakes - and lookie you - tackling a lace pattern and doing it beautifully! Good job!
