Socks Galore

I’ve knitted my fair share of socks in my life, strangely enough I don’t often take pictures of each pair. But trust me there have been lots.

This is a very large pair and socks, as many of you will know, can be made in all sizes. However, I’ve not yet made a baby or toddler pair of socks, maybe it should be one of my next projects?

Now, I’m currently working on a few different things: a shirt for my friend (he’s been waiting for this for about a year or so), a baby cardigan (knitted) and a little dress (sewn). I’ll put them all up as soon as I’m done. In the meantime I’ll make sure all the stuff that I’ve previously made gets added on here!

These booties are not made for walking!

These kinds of boots have seen many baby feet. I like to knit them for pretty much anyone that is having a baby, as they are very easy to make. The choices of colour combinations are also quite inspiring, as no two every look the same.

I am usually able to knit one pair in one night in front of the TV. Strangely enough I find I knit quicker when I’m not actually looking at my knitting, apart from when I absolutely have to, what’s with that?

When I first started knitting these booties about 12 or 13 years ago, the pattern came from a German magazine that had many patterns of baby clothes. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name, as I have used it so much that the front cover of the magazine has disappeared.

I have over the years made some minor changes to the pattern and have personalised it a little bit. Overall it is an easy knit that makes a very nice present!
