Socks for my Son

These socks were a lot of fun! I'm really happy with the way they turned out, especially in the fit. I used the Master Upstream Sock Architecture from Cat Bordhi's Book New Paways for Sock Knitters. They went around in my purse and were easy to work on wherever I went. My son is a very eager recipient and is always happy when he sees something I’ve made is for him.

Name of Project: Son #1 Upstream Socks
Yarn: Sock It To Me and Trekking Pro Natura
Needles: Size US 0 (2.0 mm) Knit Picks circulars
Estimated Time to Complete Project: 3.5 weeks
Pattern Notes: Cast on 10, increase up to 56 sts, knit until toe = 3.25”. Place markers for arch expansion. Expand arch until 84 sts (56 on instep ndl), turn heel p.120, work leg. Work 1.5” of ribbing, use sewn bind-off.

These are his master numbers for the next pair, although the way his feet grow, I don't think they'll be good for long.

Son #1’s Master Numbers as of 7/6/08:

He's got two pairs of socks in his drawer, and if I can get one more pair done before school starts, I'll be happy. I was going to try for four pairs, but with the sock contest stuff I'm working on I don't think it's going to happen. Gotta keep it fun!

So glad that they came out so nice and the two different kinds of yarn look super great together. Nice job!
