And I'm pretty sure my boys do, too. Especially since Charlie has been asking for a new pair of socks since this time last year.
I also love self striping yarn. Sort of takes all the thought out of deciding what pattern to knit. One 150g. of Opal blues, color 2025 was just enough for 2 pairs. A mere 2 yards was all that was left. I cast on 52 stitches using my favorite Ann Budd basics. A little elastic sewn into the rib helps keep them in place.
It was pretty rewarding when I made my rounds the other night, and spotted a foot dangling out of the bed wearing his new sock. Made me wonder if he loved them more because he had to wait so long for them. Maybe. Maybe not. But either way, I've decided Socktoberfest will be all about socks for the kids. So, until next year boys, enjoy your socks.
