Please do your best to get these socks to Trondheim before the holidays!
Phew! I managed to finish the socks from my previous post/rant today. I'm mailing them tomorrow and will cross my fingers very hard hoping that they make it to my cousin before the 24th.
The pink ones are for a 1 year old girl. Knit from Sandnes Lanett using 2.25mm needles. The pattern is from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush.
The red one is for the 3 year old big sister. Using the same stitch pattern but thicker yarn and 2.75mm needles. I only cast on 40 stitches. I also did short row heel and toes, after trying a "normal" heel first ending up with a sock that fit my 5 year old and frogging a whole lot!
I'm happy about both pairs. I am also sure of one thing: 2008 is not going to be year of the sock for me. Hats and mittens maybe? And I'm hoping to squeeze in the odd sweater!
