I've been knitting for a few years now, but had never knitted socks, except for booties and baby socks.
So I thought I'd give it a try. I had bought yarn for this project a while back knowing that I wanted to do it sometime. I also like lace knitting so that was the type of sock I wanted to do. Straight stockinette? No,no.
But as you can see, of course with the yarn I chose you can not see the pattern at all. I'll have to do it again with a more solid yarn.
While knitting, my granddaughter who is always interested in what I'm making, asked me what it was. When I told her I was making socks, she told me that I should make her some also. What's a grandma to do? Make her some also.
These are a lace knit also with a solid yarn. You can see the pattern on this pair.
The socks are also a little large for her. But that means they'll last a while. She likes them.
