December Socks

Ok, finally I have had time to finish my December socks for Sock A Month. I was so busy in doing Christmas knitting, plus papers and assignments and exams for school, that I didn't know if I'd ever get any socks done. These are another pair of baby socks (seems that's all I have had time for lately), and it's another pattern of my own creation. I call it Baby Diamonds and Purls, and the pattern is super easy - even if it's kinda goofy looking (but hey, I was just experimenting). If anyone is interested in the pattern, just let me know in the comments section and I'll post the pattern in the near future. I'll also be posting the pattern for the November socks I created very shortly too (either later today or tomorrow), so watch for that!

I'll also post a picture of the diamonds up close so you can see them a little better:

I'm sure there are better ways of designing patterns - I definately don't claim to know how to do it...I just make it up as I go and kind of experiment. I think these ones are ok, definately not anything fancy. I'll be putting them toward the mitten tree at church for next year.

Both are so cute and appealing. You are so talented to experiment and create these darling items.

How cool! Love the color. I'd love to see them on a live foot ... see how those diamond look on the ankle. Would be a great sock for my Munchkin, JD.

I wish I had a live foot to put it on...I think the diamonds would probably look a little bulked out some (like in the first picture), though it might not...if it's stretched it might not be too bad.

It may look different stretched out like lace does. Lace looks scrunchy until it's on a leg. Put your hand inside the cuff if you can & see what that looks like.

Hey, you are turning into quite the designer, huh! Those socks are so cute!

I am looking sooooo forward to seeing the pattern for the November Red Socks you did! I want to make some of those. I haven't had to time to make socks in time for November and December on the KAL 2, but I'd like to whip up a pair of those for January.

Isn't it great fun to just knit and see what comes off the needles ... I love to do that.

Tina...send me an email (link is on my blog) and I'll send you the pattern. I have it typed up in Word with a picture of the socks at the top.

Shelley, the socks are wonderful. I can't imagine designing socks, I barely finish knitting them!

I love the scrunchy look of them. Great job!

Thanks for admiring the scarves I finished up. Hey, these little baby socks are cool! Good creative job. I need to make a pair of socks soon, before I forget how!
