More Socks!

I was a knitting machine this week!  I completed two more pairs of socks - one toddler pair, and one child (size 2-4)!

The first picture is of the toddler socks I made.  It only took me a couple of days to complete them because I wasn't constantly working on them every minute.  The yarn I used was Bernat Sox, but I seem to have thrown out or misplaced the wrapper so I'm not sure of the colourway.  The pattern I used was the same as in the previous post. The yarn you see in the background of the photo is the beginning of the child's socks I finished today.

For the child's socks, I used Knit Picks Parade. I had this yarn in my stash for a few years now.  I'm not sure of the size of needles, but I think they are about 3.0mm or 3.25mm.  I couldn't find my needle gauge that measures the size of the needles.

The little girl I made the child's socks for is not quite two years old.  The size are supposed to be 2-4, so they will be big on her, but she can grow into them at least.  I hope her parents like them!

As for what I will knit next, I'm not really sure. I might continute to make some more baby/toddler socks, or child's socks because the Bernat yarn still has lots left - it is/was a 100g ball I believe. I can definitely make lots more baby/toddler socks with what is left!  I do have the scarf I've been slowly working at for the past year. It would probably be wise to finish that project up!

Other than knitting, I haven't been doing a whole lot. This past November I graduated from university with my Bachelor of Education and got my teaching license.  I've been doing some supply teaching since then, but unfortunately I'm not getting a whole lot of work yet.  I did get one and a half days this past week, which is the most I've had in awhile.  Some weeks I get a day or a half a day, and there have been a couple of weeks where I had no work.  I also applied for a part time job doing ESL work for 3 hours a week.  That was about three weeks ago.  A week after my interview I hadn't heard anything so I emailed the man who did my interview and he said they still had some interviews the following week but they would let everyone know that weekend.  I didn't hear anything that week, and that Friday there had been a snow storm so I thought maybe they had to cancel interviews for that day and maybe they'd have them this past week and decide this current weekend on who they wanted to hire.  If I don't hear anything this weekend, I am going to assume I didn't get the job.  I'm leaving it all up to God though; He's got a plan for me, even if I don't know what it is. I just need to trust Him!

Well, heading off to relax now, and maybe do some more knitting - though I don't know what I'll work at yet.  I'll find something!  Happy knitting!

Your Bernat Sox are crazy hot. (You really get to know colorway names working in a yarn shop!)

I'm sure something will work out soon with your teaching. Steadier work is bound to happen!!

Very nice socks. I have a few skeins of Bernat Sox. I should knit them up.
