Little Socks Part 2

I can not make something for one small child around here without making something comparable for the other. Thus we have another pair of small socks:

Pattern: Knit to Fit Ankle or Calf Socks by Nancy Lindberg, Yarn: Socka by Stahl Wolle, Colorway 6358

I've already written plenty about this pattern. The yarn, on the other hand, I have never used and I do not plan to ever use again. It is a cotton/wool/polyamide combo that my skin did not like. It actually wore a sore on my tension finger - not sure if it was an allergic reaction or just super rough. It also is really thin, but on the plus side, it actually made really nice fabric.

Luckily I only had one small skein of it in my stash and do not plan to buy it again.

By the way, I am not such a fast knitter that I started and finished these after the other little socks. I knit them pretty much at the same time.

I have a bunch of other stuff I have to knit now, so I may not get to make any more socks for a bit. At Knitting Guild last week one of the members mentioned that she has about 24 pairs of hand knit socks. I think that sounds like a good goal...when I get a chance...of course, the kids want more too, having already asked what's going to happen when these have to be washed!
