More Socks

I know, it's been a little while since I last posted. I've been a little busy with school and have been a little lazy too. I have done some knitting, though not as much as I would have liked.

I made two pairs of little baby socks from the pattern over on Rachel's Ramblings. It is a really easy pattern, and knit up quickly (when I worked on them).

The pair to the right is the feather and fan following Rachel's pattern. The pair to the left is the blueberry waffles pattern which I found an easy pattern as well.

I used a skein of Bernat Sox (60% acrylic, 40% nylon) in the Crazy Hot colourway. I still have enough yarn left to make at least one more pair of baby socks, and possibly two. Not sure what pattern I will use for the next pair, but I'll have a look-see through the patterns I have and ones on the net to see if something strikes my fancy.




Off to do more homework - have three chapters to read, a small 2 page essay to write on the three chapters, an exercise for the TESL class (it's making up grammar sheets that could be used for a certain class level and can take awhile to do), some grammar work, a 6-10 sentence essay as well as read over several essays and do a critique/edit on one of them. Fun stuff, but it's interfering with my knitting time, LOL! Just kidding...sorta.

Great little socks! Those are gonna make somebody's tiny little toes very happy with all those bright colors!

My gosh! With that much homework it's a wonder you have time to knit at all!

Great socks Shelley! Isn't it fun to knit the small sizes? I used that same yarn for a pair of socks for my niece; it's perfect for little ones.

THose socks are adorable!! I've done the blueberry waffle before, and it is a great pattern! It is nice and simple and looks really good.

Good luck getting all of your work done!

I love the socks! I found that after making my own socks that I have just enough for a pair for baby socks. I'll be doing the feather & fan one next. Thanks!

How about thumbless mittens to match the socks? ...
now that's an idea!
