Chris' Socks

I FINALLY got around to taking pictures of the socks today, after he's been wearing them now for weeks. The sock yarn is Austermann Step in colorway #04. I used a little twisted cable pattern on every other knitted rib and carried that down the top of the foot till I started decreases for the toes.

It has a typical Kitchener graft. The heel is . . . I don't know what it's called. It's the only kind of heel I know how to do. (I think, maybe, it's a french heel.)


Today has been fun. We stayed home to keep the family together on Easter. The eggs and candy and jelly beans were hunted for and found. I made egg salad out of the eggs and put that in the fridge for later. We had a late breakfast of monkey bread (part of a nutritious breakfast if you add eggs, juice, and milk) and an even later lunch of fresh bread and egg salad.

And now I believe I have no choice but to give in to the urge for an Easter nap.

WOW! Let me be the first to say those are great socks. He had better appreciate all you had to do for those beautful big footed socks. I aspire to your greatness in many ways.

Oooo, those are some good lookin' socks. I like that type of heel. It cradles the foot so nicely. Way to go, Alaska!
