I knit two pairs of socks for Secundogeniture for his hospital visit. One he wore the night before surgery and this pair he wore the day he got out. Otherwise he had to wear those hospital socks with the sticky soles for safety reasons. These are the socks with arch support I posted last week for Finishing Friday.
Yes - I made them big. Secundogeniture is already wearing a Men's size 9 at the tender age of ten. I can only imagine how much his paws are going to continue to grow. His father is a 12 1/2 - 13. So I decided to knit these a little bit big so he could grow into them. I also wasn't familiar with this yarn, and wasn't too keen on the idea of them shrinking and going immediately to his younger cousin (like a recent pair). This could require purchasing 2 skeins of 100 g sock yarn in the near future.
I started to knit a pair of Get Well Socks for Primogeniture, too, but who am I kidding? He doesn't like handknit socks. I'm still going to finish them. You know, just in case he changes his mind.
