I made socks!! Yup....Socks!! I finally did the whole "heel flap, turn the heel, graft the toe" thing. I am insanely proud of these. The fact that little miss refuses to wear them doesn't dampen my enthusiasm and love for my first EVER sock FO.
They may be in DK and knit on 4mm and they may be toddler size but socks are socks...right?
I actually kind of liked knitting these much to my own surprise. No 2nd sock syndrome here, these cute little things only took a night and a bit each. My entry into the Ravelympics SockPut and my first foray into learning about sock anatomy.
There are a few mistakes that show these socks were handmade with lots of love (lots of lessons learnt about tension while slipping stitches and picking up with no holes) but N2 hasn't noticed.
And look they fit even....
The yarn is from this stash and dyed by me in lavender shades of purple and green. The pattern I used is this one - the top down toddler version with a couple of
mistakes modifications to make them slightly bigger for an almost 3yo (14cm).
