The last few years I have only been knitting socks for myself and Mickael.  Caleb's feet were growing too fast to keep up with and he only wore socks with shoes - not around the house.  (Both Caleb and Mickael have only ever worn hand knit socks around the house.)  I actually can't remember the last time I knit socks for Caleb, but his feet have slowed down (or stopped) growing and he told me he likes sleeping in socks.  So I did some measuring on his feet (he's still super ticklish of foot!) and asked him some questions about what he wants (short socks) and I'm knitting him a couple of pairs so he can decide what he likes for hand knit socks.

I'm unreasonably excited about knitting socks for him again.  It's not like they'll be anywhere near as fast as they used to be - he has the same shoe size as Mickael, but I'm excited anyway.  For the first pair of socks I'm using a new-to-me pattern - Run Wild.  These are built along the same lines as commercial socks for running - a tab to protect the Achilles tendon and arch support.  For Caleb's socks I've skipped the Achilles tab since he'll be primarily using them for sleeping, but I've done the arch support.

I've gotten his first sock knit and I'm working on the second now.  I'm using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight in Korppi (I think - it's one of the raven colors).  I plan on giving him these (and hopefully another pair that I haven't knit yet) for Christmas.  The last few years I've been tucking a pair of handknit socks into Mickael's stocking (along with other, more exciting things) and this year Caleb will get some too!

Speaking of which, I need to knit a pair of socks for Mickael before Christmas too!

Thanks for the link to the Run Wild socks. Those are exactly what I have been looking for! I have some Socks that Rock lightweight just waiting for me too. Yours look wonderful. Thanks again.
