Actually these were supposed to be socks for him. Well, that did not work out. I tried to fit the sock over his heel last night - it was too tight. These lace bits make a sock non-stretchy. At least not as stretchy as stockinette. I guess I should have added a lace repeat or two somewhere. And I was sooo proud of him of being open enough to wear lace socks. Maybe next time. In the meanwhile I have to finish my second sock.
