My six year old grandson doesn't like scratchy wool socks against his feet, meaning he has a preference for the feel of high end yarn.

I get a kick out of watching him go through my sock yarn stash until he finds exactly what he wants, then very politely requests his next pair of socks.

These are his latest, no pattern, long socks made from Cherry Tree Hill silk with wool sock yarn. I made them using the stretchy Old Norwegian Cast On with 1x1 twisted rib stitch for the two inch cuff, allowing the sock tops to be folded down if they were too long.

Doesn't appear folding will be necessary this time.

I like a child who knows what they want. Is it just the photo or does he have big feet for a six year old?
