On the needles

My first slip stitched heel
 I was sitting at the table a couple days after Thanksgiving picking up stitches because the heel of the striped socks was off center, why don't patterns say place a marker x number of stitches from each side?!? I have trouble counting  oldest son asked what I was doing so I showed him the socks I was knitting for his Dad and he said "I would wear those" my four favorite words!! I told him they were wool and could be washed in the machine but need to dry flat, he said he already does that with his smartwool socks. He is a smart boy! so 5 minutes after he left I was on the internet ordering more yarn for socks just for him. Happy knitting--Ann-- check out all the wonderful knitting projects at Judy's.  P.S. its snowing here!!!!

You are such a good mom, and a big softie too. He's lucky to have a smart mom that can knit on command.! :)

Don't you just love the feel of knitted socks on your feet?

Once you've work knitted socks they make ordinary socks feel flimsy and not very desirable.

I hope your boys feel very special.
