more socks

Sort of a sucker for the baby socks…

 They’re just so tiny and cute.  And I’m loving the short row heel and toe.

   

Pattern: HuncaMunca baby socks – twist and rib (The pattern lists “leg” twice in each sock pattern’s instructions, the second “leg” in each should read “foot”.)

Yarn: stash Knit Picks Gloss – Serengeti (waaaay less than one skein)

Needles: US 0 (2mm) circs

Mods: Let’s call them design elements. Evidently I can’t count to three consistently, so the cable repeat on the leg has some with 4 rows between and some with 3. Fortunately, I was knitting 2 at once, so at least the pattern is consistent on both socks. I completed 5 repeats on the leg of the sock, which makes for a knee high (I hope).

matching mitts

The Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap was so cute, it needed some matching mitts.

These teensy little things work up in no time in the round with self-striping fingering weight yarn. Using US2.5 dpns (or circs if you’re a magic looper or 2 on 2 circs kind of knitter), the gague is 7sts/inch in stockinette.

Here’s the pdf and here they are on Ravelry. And here’s the Norwegian translation, thanks to vaya at www.whiskyogstrikketoy.wordpress.com.

Enjoy the pattern and please let me know if there are any errors.

drip, drip

Some flood, eh? Well it’s better than nothing…

A cute and quick knit using some stash self-striping fingering weight yarn. This hat knit up in no time.  I’m about to start some mitts to match. Some much needed instant gratification to keep me motivated on the bunting, which is about 40% complete.

Pattern: Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap

Yarn: Knit Picks Memories – Redwood Forest (waaaay less than one skein)

Mods: Made smaller than original pattern to fit a newborn. Cast on 103, k15 between increases and decreases
