I started a pair of striped socks for Philip on Wednesday. I was going to reinforce the heels and toes with that thin nylon thread, but I couldn't find it and I really wanted to start the socks. Since the sock yarn already has nylon in it they will probably be fine. Since they are boy socks I am not doing any fancy stitch patterns, just basic socks. After I turned the heel I got really excited since I was past the halfway point, but I forgot that boy feet are big and Philip is no exception. I have 9 inches to knit before I can start the toe. I hope I bought enough yarn!
