Momma loves her boys

Alex has been wearing the rainbow-colored socks I knit for him, for 5 straight days o.0  I can't get them off of his feet long enough to even wash them, lol.  So when he asked me for a light-blue pair I figured I should get right on it.  And here's the first of the pair. 

The yarn is Shibui Sock in Sky.  The yardage is small compared to most skeins of sock yarn, but it's okay when you've got small feet.  I don't know if you can see it very well in this webcam shot, but the yarn is tonal and it's really pretty in person. 

I was going to do a plain stockinette sock, but I just can't.  It bores me to death.  So I went for a waffle texture on the leg and decided to go ahead and continue it down the foot.  I always worry that too much texture will bother him when he's wearing shoes, but I'm willing to risk it.  I mean, what's the worst that could happen...they end up sitting in his sock drawer, all unloved, like his Ruby Gloom socks did?  What ever.  Small socks are fast.

I wonder what color he'll ask me for next?

P.S.  Aaron likes the Madeline Tosh Sock in Mare (as do I) so I just got another valid reason to buy more Tosh sock yarn.

  1. Wow! Five days straight? He definitely love those socks. I hope he likes these blues just as much. They look good.
