Green Eggs And Ham

...Umm, I mean green socks and other stuff...

Finally got the green socks for my nephew finished. I hadn't worked on them while the knitting olympics were on and really missed doing them. It was a little awkward working with the smaller needles after using a size 5.0mm needle for the scarf!

Tinker Belle was checking out the socks to see if they would pass inspection. I think she seemed satisfied with them. She's impressed that I am improving on the kitchener stitch on the toe area and meowed her approval. Here's a closer look at the socks to the left.

I have already cast on for another pair of children's socks, but they might not go to my nephew. We'll see though.

Can't wait until tomorrow when I can cast on for my red socks for Project Spectrum. I think I'm going to use the feather and fan pattern from Shazzas Knits. The only red sock yarn I have on hand is a solid red, but I don't think that will matter.

Off to get a little knitting done before I have to read the required pages for my Communication Disorders class later this afternoon.

Happy Knitting!

Cute photo with all the little boy related things around the little mans socks. Toe grafting becomes easier with each sock you do.

I will be chuffed to see someone make my feather and fan socks, give a holler if you find any typos', I hope not but you never know.

Hi Shelly!

So how did your little nephew like his cute new socks? I bet he loved them!

The toes look fine! I get turned around sometimes doing the kitchener stitch, which is really not that hard if I just concentrate on it. There is a cute little sing-songy poem thing that helps, when I can remember it! LOL

I LOVE the picture of Tinker Belle peeping over the books at the socks and little yellow car!

Tina, I haven't given my nephew the socks yet. He should be up tomorrow though and I will give them to him then.
