A little boy is sick this week. In between mopping fevered brow, washing away buckets of puke and emptying baskets of snotty tissues, something popped off the needles.
Pretty, non? They’re my first pair of Knitsch socks, believe it or not. Yummy, squishy, hand-dyed 100% New Zealand merino! I have to say I like pure wool socks a lot better than the 75% wool, 25% nylon versions. I find the nylon content shows through after a year or so of wear, and makes the socks feel squeaky. And then I don’t like the socks quite so much any more. Whereas, pure wool just keeps getting nicer…
These are a standard 64 stitch cast on with 2.25mm needles, cuff down, partridge eye heel and tapered toe (as opposed to a square toe).
The little boy is better today, thank goodness! He’s still running a temperature but at least I know he’s on the mend.
