For 100 little toes!

I have 10 pairs of socks done for CIC. It was a fun effort, but must admit that I am anxious to get back to a pair of adult socks. I think primarily for the thinner yarn and small needles. Worsted Weight feels like Twine as it runs thru my fingers. Funny...longing for that tiny gauge, where progress is so slow!! I will cast on a 72 st on Size 0 needles tomorrow, and be quite content! Hope my efforts find some little toes to warm. It will be worth it, if that is the case!

Well, aren't those just wonderful! I think my favorites are the green with blue/gold stripes, although I'm always fond of solid red, because they look so cheery!

I have a heck of a time knitting kids socks. I love the variety. You have given me the incentive to get started again.

I love your socks! I, too, knit for CIC, but haven't made done much knitting recently because we just moved. Seeing your socks is giving me inspiration to get some more on the needles, I must say!

What lively warm socks you have on display. Some very happy feet will be wearing them this next winter and that fact alone must warm your heart too.

I haven't used size 0 yet [usually size 1 or 2] but I bought the dpns to give it a try some time soon. Would you suggest a good pattern that you enjoy using? BTW, thanks for you comment on my STR socks.

What a generous donation of time and creativity. I can tell you had fun with all the different colors and stitch patterns.

The kids will love them.
