is something of a birthday month, with L and H celebrating two weeks apart.
Here they are, my cheeky monkeys, aged 9, 11, and 13.
Here are their feet, sized 7, 9, and 11. Do I seem slightly obsessed with their feet size? I am, because it totally correlates to the time it takes me to knit them socks. Can you blame me for hesitating to knit such big socks?
But L, the 11 year old, really shows his appreciation by wearing his handknit socks all.the.time, only to take them off for a shower. So I knit him a pair that he could wear all.the.time, even with his school uniform (as long as doesn't take his shoes off to reveal the green bits, heh).
The pattern is Nancy Bush's Country Socks from Folk Socks. The yarns used are 2 balls of navy blue Regia Silk, contrasted with just under 20 g of lime Araucania Ranco. I cast on 64 sts so didn't need to do any calf shaping.
L's wearing them right this minute as he sleeps. :-)
