About a month ago, this rotten child stole a pair of my socks and decided to keep them unless and until I provided her with a pair of new handknit socks of her own.
As I was fond of the pair of socks she managed to get ahold of...and as I worried about what the damage a 9-year-old might do to said socks....I capitulated.
I had actually already purchased yarn to makes socks for my girls, feeling slightly guilty about not giving them each a new pair last year. They typically only get one pair of socks/year since they grow so fast....but that one pair of socks is always well-loved and well-used.
Basic socks (Ann Budd, ditto yesterday's pattern)
Opal Schafpate, 1 skein of 3151
Knit Picks 2.25mm DPN's
June 31 - July 10, 2012
68 stitches (She likes them loose.)
60 rows 2x2 in leg, 50 rows in foot
I should add two things.
1. My apologies for no links. My time is very short this summer, and I've linked to these details a million times before.
2. Honestly, I don't have the brainpower for much more than socks right now. This summer has been - as you know - incredibly taxing on my time, energy, mental capacity and emotional energy. Until things calm down a little bit you just might see a parade of socks and equally simple items.
