Welcome one and all to the new blog. You can still look at my old blog if you want, I’m going to put a link to it in the sidebar, so you can still rummage around over there. But this is where the posting shall be. Okay anyway, I have a dilemma with the Boy Socks.

They look way to big to me. But, what do I know, I’ve never knit socks for a guy. I know I know, I could have used that Handy Book Of Knitting Patterns, but was I thinking when I cast-on? No. I just guessed and went. I’m not entirely sure what size feet Ben has or anything, but I’m guessing they are similar to my brothers. And you know, socks stretch. So I’m now off to rip out this half of a cuff and start over. Joy.
UPDATE AT 9:50: About 10 minutes after posting, I found this knitting pattern: <a href=”http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60049.html”>Wool-Ease Men’s Grey Socks</a>. I’ve got enough Wool-ease laying around to make them more interesting than just Grey, maybe a different colored ribbing, heel, and toe. But, I guess I’ll use this pattern. I just ripped out the first one’s I started. Maybe i’ll save that yarn for socks for me or something.
