Yep, another pair of socks...


While I was doing my Olympic Knitting, Caleb would walk up (several times a day) and ask who I was knitting socks for. (I have to give the kid credit, he knew they were socks even before they were at the heel. He knows things about knitting.) I told him they were for me -its easier to knit socks for yourself because your feet are always convenient. You don't have to wake someone up to find out when to start the toe decreases or how long they would like the leg of the sock to be. This is important in Athletic Knitting Events. Every time I would tell him the socks were for me, he would just sigh dramatically and walk away. So, when the Olympics were over, I pulled out the Harvest yarn I had spun (Harvest Roving from Linden Lane Farm) and started knitting him a pair of socks. I had promised to knit him some socks from this, and as you can see, now he has a pair! Since Wool-Sock-Weather-For-Little-Boys is coming to a close, I tried to make them a bit large so they'll fit this fall. I knit these on size 1 needles (2.25mm) which, in retrospect, was probably insane. I seriously debated frogging the first one and starting over while I was doing the gusset, but decided against it. Every little boy needs socks that can stand up to concrete! I've got more of this yarn that I'll knit a pair of for myself, but I'll use size 2's for my socks.

This makes 7 pairs of socks for this year! I think I'm well on my way to clearing out all the storebought socks from my sock drawer by the end of the year. That green thing? At the left of the picture? I have no idea what that is or how it got there.
