Happy Feet - AGAIN!
The bonus part of having to sit and feed a baby who has a reasonable amount of head control is that it carves out a little knitting time each day as well. So, I've been plugging along on my faux fair isle socks, and FINALLY, after almost a year, they're finished!
I purposely didn't try to line up the stripes - for years all my socks were tie dyed, and I kind of liked that they didn't perfectly match. Looking at these socks though, I wish I'd given it a shot.
The pattern is from the book Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd. It really is a great all-purpose pattern. Next time though, I won't make the leg 8" long - I think 6" would have been sufficient.
I can see that socks make excellent carrying around knitting, and am considering starting another pair - perhaps with some yarn I find this weekend?!?!?!
