My older son picked out the yarn for his first Mom-knit socks. (Ravelry notes here.) I was expecting him to go very dark and was pleasantly surprised when he grabbed this self-striping yarn. I got a ton knit on the road, but it stalled quickly when we were pushing to get the house done. Alas, all projects come to an end and this one did. He’s super happy with them. The bonus is his feet are exactly the same size as mine. So, when he outgrows them, guess who gets to keep these?
I’m working on a pair of gloves for him now and then I’m going to start the next pair of socks for Little Fella. I am starting to see the awesomeness of sock knitting! Easy to do, very portable, and the end result feels so great!
