I managed to whip up a pair of socks for my little man in a couple of days last week. I realised that as it’s getting colder here he doesn’t have any woollen socks, and he desperately needs them. Before he was born I managed to make three pairs for him which he wore in rotation when it was a newborn. So, I followed the same pattern and made a bigger pair.
In fact, instead of making a 9-12 months size I decided to go for the 12-18 months. Mainly because Luke’s feet are quite big and I didn’t want him to outgrow them quickly, especially as he’ll probably be using them from now on until February time. And I’m glad I made the bigger size because they fit very well, and just have a little bit of room at the front.
The yarn I bought off Kate at The Confessions of a Graveyard Gypsy, and it’s gorgeous. The colour works really well and it’s really nice to knit with. I started a second pair of socks straightaway as a Christmas present for my nephew with the same yarn. It’s called Cesana Sock Yarn and I got about 12 skeins from Kate, so you’ll be seeing more socks on here soon. Here’s Luke inspecting his new socks and I think he likes them!
