This week I finished up another pair of socks - for C this time. Earlier in the year both my kids asked for a pair of hand knit socks. I finished J's pair a few weeks ago and then moved onto the pair for C.
The yarn is Heart and Sole by Red Heart, knitted on a Size 1.5 needle. C's shoe size is somewhere between a kids 13 and an adult 1 so I went about 6.75 inches long with 56 stitches around. The pattern is a plain top down, slip stitch heel flap construction. I think it may be time to branch out to a new pattern for my next pair since I've done this pattern a few times now.
After finishing these socks I moved on to my next project. My friend's baby shower is next weekend so I wanted to make something for her. I'm giving Saartje's booties a try.
I also have to take a minute to brag about my knit worthy niece! Her birthday was earlier this month and a few days beforehand I was teasing her, telling her she was going to love what I got her for her birthday. She said, "ooh did you make me a hat and scarf?!" Unfortunately the answer was no but now I totally know what she is getting for Christmas! What a cutie!
