When Y requested socks, choosing a color was a no-brainer. Of course, they'd have to be in his favorite blue. These were knit on 60 sts in a 3 x 1 ribbing, which continued in the heel flap, using Regia's Kaffe Fassett Landscape Storm sock yarn.
I made these a little longer (8.5 inches) than his feet because we all know those feet, they grow like weeds. (sigh. I sure miss the days when his legs were just pudgy dough, and you could knead them whenever.)
I ironed on some Regia sock stoppers, only because I thought they're cute rather than as a safe necessity. He'd much rather be able to skate freely around!
