August Socks

Finally I have completed the pair of children's socks I have slowly been working on for awhile now. They've been one of those projects that you have to fall back on when you want to do mindless knitting or something small. I say mindless because it is just a basic simple pattern of knitting with no pattern in the stitches. Basically it's my default children's pattern - ok so it's been the only children's pattern I've used so far...

Anyway, these are my first entry for the Sock of the Month 2 KAL:

Here are the details:

Pattern: Basic simple pattern from the back of a yarn wrapper
Needle Size: 3.0 mm
Yarn: Patons Kroy
Colourway: Umm I think it was country something or other (I forget)
Sock Size: 2-4

And just because I haven't posted a picture of Kitten Yarns & Crafts resident cat herself, Tinker Belle, I will leave you with the latest picture I have taken of her:

Your socks look great Shelley. Tink looks like she is waiting for something, did you have a treat for her?

They look marvelous!

Great socks Shelly, and Tinker Bell is one beautiful cat.
I'm off to get some wool tomorrow and see if I can find a pattern for leg warmers for my daughters dancing classes.
I've not done serious knitting for about 6 years now, it will be like getting in an old saddle.

Tinker Belle looks like she's not too happy about her picture not being up in a while. Or maybe she's trying to mind control you into giving her tasty fishies. But whatever is going through her mind, she's a cute kitty.

Good job on finishing the socks. They look comfy.
