The long knitting project I nicknamed the “sampler sock” project (Nancy Bush’s Little Child Sock) is finally finished. I love how they fit. I love how they feel. I’m not sure I love the “flashing” of up near the cuff, but that will get covered by jeans. I can finally dunk these in the wool wash and get them ready for when Autumn’s brisk breezes blow.
If my version doesn’t “wow” you, then check out the following blogger’s socks:
- Over at Exercise Before Knitting, Elinor’s socks are plain aqua (she used Lorna’s Laces yarn too)
- Lu Lubeans used Lion Brand sock yarn, for a stripy pair
- Mustaa villaa managed to create the Little Child’s sock for a larger foot
- And red shows off the pattern in Jessimuhka Knits‘ pair
I may want to backwards engineer anklet socks from this pattern. A pair would make a sweet gift for a family member with similar size feet. I would definitely want to use plain sock yarn (which I would need to acquire) to show off the stitch pattern.
- Lorna’s Laces sock yarn, in the Tuscany colorway
- Time I dawdled on these: 10 months (I know, what was I waiting for?)
- Pattern found in Knitting Vintage Socks, by Nancy Bush
- Assistance provided by Malkin the Wunderkat, who wants to steal my size 1 double points
Put these in the can, folks. That’s a wrap.
