Aren't they cute? I used some left over Bernat Sox yarn that I had from my first pair of socks I made last January (the pink and purple strip ones). I didn't follow the pattern exactly, and sort of combined two patterns plus my own ways (well actually the way that I've been using for the other socks I've made). I used this pattern and this pattern for a guide. The second link I used mostly the numbers (such as casting on 28 to make the small size and to decrease the instep and length of foot). The first pattern I used to help me know how far down to knit before starting the heel, the guide for turning the heel and the length of the foot...might have been something else too but can't remember off hand. For my own contribution I only did 4 rows of ribbing at the top (I think next time I'll make it 8 just so it looks a little better), I did the heel the way I've been doing those all along, and the kitchener stitch on the toes for practice. I also decided to make the leg simple stocking stitch for this pair, just because I couldn't really understand the pattern at the time. I will try that pattern at some point though...I just wanted to get these made before the end of March so I didn't really try to do the pattern.
Anyway, thanks for those links Karen, and providing some inspiration for making these with the ones that you've made!
I figure that these should count for a brownie point with the Sock A Month KAL (the have turned heels!), and with Project Spectrum since they are pink! And, I can increase my count for the Count Your Socks as well since they are socks and I just finished a pair! Don't you just LOVE when doing one project counts for so many things?
And, because Tinker Belle wasn't aware I was taking the pic of the socks, she didn't get into this one...however, just so she doesn't fee left out, here is the latest pic of her!
