Little Socks

Finished: One adorable pair of striped socks fit for a 2 year old

Pattern: Knit to Fit Ankle or Calf Socks by Nancy Lindberg, Yarn: Regia Crazy Color, colorway 5260


This pattern is so flexible! You can make any size socks with any weight yarn. At this point, I don't need to consult it any longer, but I am using the basic construction for the socks I have been knitting. Yes, there are more in the works already!

Sorry, this picture is a little blurry - it is very hard to get a 2 year old to hold still for any picture, but especially one of their feet when they are wearing new socks.

The stripe repeats are very long on this yarn, with one sock taking slightly more than one repeat. I did not want to waste an entire sock worth of yarn just to get the socks to match exactly, so they are slightly different.

V. could not care less. She calls them her "Happy Socks" which, of course, makes me happy. When we took them off tonight for the bath she asked "Can I wear them again tomorrow, pleeeeease?" I guess she likes them!

Those "Happy socks" are simply adorable! You must be the world's fastest knitter. I think you finish five projects to my one.

But what makes me all giggly inside is how deeply you've been bitten by the sock bug. You've been waiting for it, so I'll say it now:

I told you so!

Nicely done, my friend.

Holy cow--you're a sock knitting speed demon! :) And, it's okay, I told Katrina so, too! :)
