Love socks

What does a Mom do when she watches her son adjust to a new life as a diabetic? Knit love socks! These socks were as much for me as they were for him. As I knit these I felt like I had a little control. I could remind him again that his mom loves him through all of life's adventures & always will.
7 year old boys do not like to stand still long for photoshoots of their socks. This picture was taken last week at Grammy's house. Don't his feet look like they are ready to get back to having fun again?
Knit with Lorna's Laces (always so yummy!), color argyle. My own pattern.

I have a 7 year-old, too, who just cannot stay still. :-)

Those socks are too cute!

I've checked out your blog before, so I'm glad to see your ds is doing OK & adjusting.

The socks look great!

Luckily, kids adjust quickly to news such as this, as your son appears to have.

Good upbringing, I say.

It's so funny - I was on your blog last week and saw my socks (but of course, didn't know they were my socks!)!!! I was on here earlier and had a comment all typed, then Blogger crapped out and lost it! I know I've visited your blog before, don't know if I commented. I remembered the unusual name, and I also remembered the quote from Rose Wilder Lane, too!

Thanks so much for the game, bar, socks, and sock yarn! I love it all! (Course, the littlest one latched onto the game, ate part of the bar, and thought the socks were his! Good thing they're too big for him!)

I hope your son makes out okay. My husband is an insulin-dependent diabetic. He found out four years ago that he was diabetic, and he only took pills at first. Everything was great - he had normal sugar readings. Then it all went to pot, readings up around 30, onto insulin and one kind of pill. (Canadian sugar readings are different from US -- normal here is 4-6.) I know it's hard enough for him, and he's 33, let alone a child. I have to watch our boys. Hubby's father was insulin dependent, my brother is diabetic, plus it runs in aunts/uncles/cousins/grandparents on both sides.

I will have some pictures on my blog either tonight or tomorrow. My camera batteries are in the charger now! (Weird, too - I looked back through some of your posts. I see you got socks from a Sherry and sent socks to Sheri!)
