I could not resist stacking those books for the picture.
I loved using "big boy" sock yarn instead of a traditional baby boy color scheme. I have made socks for my (quite grown up) sons from this yarn; in fact I have one in progress.
How cute is that?
The yarn is Froehlich, a high quality European yarn known for durability. It comes, in fact, with a fine matching reinforcement yarn that can be knitted into the heel, or held for darning. When I heard production was going to stop on this line I scooped up several skeins and stashed them. Durability is not an issue here for Baby Daigen, of course. Further details on the knitting are on Ravelry.
Happy New Year!
