The past few weeks I have been knitting socks, very small ones and not too small ones.
The very small blue ones are for a little boy that was born on Monday, and the purple green ones are for one to be born this Wednesday, don’t know what this one is going to be. I used Regia – “My first Regia” sock yarn and The Rock’s Baby socks pattern designed by Jeanne for Jimmy Beans Wool.
The not too small ones with strips were knitted for a two year old using Regia Design line by Kaffe Fasset, the green fleck ones are also for a two year old, here I used some leftover sock yarn that I don’t have the label for any more. The bigger blue pair is knitted for a three year old little boy, again using leftover yarn, no label. For this I used The Purl Bee – Toddler socks pattern, instead of knitting the whole leg in rib pattern I knitted a cuff for about 1½” (± 4cm) then knitted the remainder of the leg in stocking stitch till the required length, I just used one colour yarn.
Oh, I also entered two pair of socks on to our local Craft show and won a first prize for both of them, an adult pair and a pink pair for a two year old little girl.
I’m still knitting my strips, hope to show you soon what I’m up to.
