Fwd: boys day pic 2012Did you celebrate Boy's Day on May 5th? or as it is called now, Children's Day (Kodomo no Hi)? Casey did. He dressed up in an outfit that belonged to his dad and sat with his koinoboi.

More socks - in Felici firefighter

Socks - Felici in FirefighterRemember I ordered some sock yarn recently? Well, I used it to cast on another pair of simple socks. I used to avoid self striping yarn, but when you don't have time to follow a pattern, it is the best way to create socks with some interest. I picked up the Firefighter colorway and casted on a pair of socks for a friend. This will be my first gift socks to go outside of the family, without the wearer nearby to check for fit. This is also my first time knitting with Knit Pick's Felici. I love the pop of red between the neutral gray. 
I cast on 60 stitches with a 2x2 rib and plan to start the heel when the leg reaches 8 inches. Just a half inch more to go. I love mindless knitting!
