Socks for ME!

Figured I'd make myself a pair of socks immediately after making Keiran's socks. I finished one and am working on the second - did an 'afterthought heel' (which is underneath the finished sock in this pic) hard to photograph afterthought heels in profile I find...but it does fit my feet, so I'll model them after I finish the second one :)

Sock knitting truly is addictive!!! I have a skein of Lorna's Laces for another pair for Keiran, and another 2 skeins of Paton's Kroy for a gift for 'Grandpa' PLUS I have some Henry's Attic Kona Fingering on its way (and some dharma dyes sitting here just waiting to do some space dying) on earth do I find the time to do this???? Posted by Picasa

Keiran's socks (my first complete pair!)

So my first try will be frogged and reknit into a baby hat, but I managed to make an actual matching pair of socks that - get this - FIT my toddler perfectly! Unfortunately, they ended up in the wash with velcro bibs (thanks to grandma), but a little bit of shaving of the fuzzy spots make these fine - besides, how long will he actually still fit in these? A month?
Guess I need to get knitting him another pair :) Posted by Picasa
