"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

These socks are made for.....

Walking......soon.....VERY soon. BG has worn primarily footed "Sleep and Plays" since he was born. So, not much need for socks. But with warm weather, and "bigger boy" clothes.....grandma wanted to knit a pair of socks. It was more an exercise in fitting than anything else. Getting a pair to stay on without the assistance of shoes was a challenge, but I think I finally made it!! (After several single socks hit the garbage can). These are 48 stitches knit on 2.25mm needles. The leg is 3" before I made a basic heel-flap heel over 24 stitches. The foot length is 3.5 inches before toe decrease. They fit perfectly and seem to stay on quite nicely......TODAY! :)
And these are finally finished, and fit ME perfectly. They are knit from Noro Silk Garden sock yarn, color #S269, knit with 2.25mm dpns. The color is totally "me". I used Kay's "Winterscape Socks" pattern. She has a great collection of sock patterns on her blog. Thanks Kay.....love them!
And just in case you need another look at those walking socks...... (sorry.... I just couldn't resist.) The bottoms will be dotted with puff paint this afternoon - to help with the wobbly syndrome we have going on right now.
