At last month's Knitters Guild meeting a couple of the ladies held an all-day sock knitting workshop. We learnt how to knit a pair of socks for 1 year old, and I was one of the lucky few who happened to have one of these creatures at home. We knit one sock in the workshop but I then decided to knit another pair, making the ribbing longer and lengthening it in the foot. I also decided to do some knitting stitch embroidery (yet another first) to tart them up a bit. Using scraps of embroidery yarn, the hearts are different colours but I don't think it matters.
Jamie joked that it was ideal for me to knit a pair of woolen socks for Nina in time for Summer, but luckily we are currently experiencing below than average temps for this time of year.
These are knitted in Patons Merino Deluxe DK which is a delight to knit with.
