Boy 1 has another new pair of plain vanilla socks. I acquired this yarn just recently and had in mind that Boy 2 would love it. But Boy 2 has become a bit fickle and while he liked the yarn well enough, he didn’t express much interest in the resulting socks. I cross-examined him after turning the heel and discovered that he didn’t really care if these were his or not. But his brother loved them, so I made them long enough to fit Boy 1’s feet. (Their ankles are similar so I use the same CO number – 48 – for both right now.)
I only had one 50 g ball of this yarn, which would have been fine for Boy 2. I cut it very close with Boy 1. I had about 12 inches of yarn left. There will be no Deck the Ball from this yarn – it’s gone! Even if I cared about making socks identical, I wouldn’t have been able to. I rather like the fraternal look, though.
Boy 1 is such a good sock recipient right now. Every time he has a fitting, he says “they’re so WARM!” And after this morning’s photo, he asked if he could wear them all day. Of course! It’s perfect wool sock weather here – 25 when we left for school and it shouldn’t break 32 all day.
