A sock and a scarf

Exam stress.

I cast on for...

Toddler socks

It was a win-win situation. I get to practice socks, beat stress, end up with an FO and blog about it too.

And it turned out to be...


Look Ma...no holes! (with a pen for scale)


Toddler? Three year old more likely.
Why? Uh...well technically, I did swatch it but then realised it was a tad too big but continued knitting anyway. No harm, no foul. I did learn how to get rid of the darn holes, keep my stitches even AND the kitchener stitch too!

Now I have one sock in a size that is certainly no use to anyone I know. My first sock, I think I shall frame it. Memories of Socktoberfest immortalised in a framed sock. Interesting.

Anyways moving on. Kathy at
MinxKnits finally received her funky scarf and I'm ecstatic to say, she loves it.
Here is a lovely picture that she was nice enough to take while modelling it!

Doesn't she look purty?

Almost the same colour and design and I'm sure it'd be love at first sight :)

Those toddler socks are adorable!! What book is that pattern in? I'd love to make some.

Kessa said...

Good idea, framing it.. How about framing your first pair of socks? (pss make the other one to go with it) As for the scarf? Too cute! =D

Bee said...

nice one!
i can understand your feeling! because i also very tempted to knit sock. :)

Ruth said...

If it's bigger than intended, the child will grow - what have you got to lose by knitting the mate? It is an awfully nice sock.

Nora said...

Thanks for the good luck wishes - 1 more week to go!! x

Sherry said...

What book is your little guys sock from? I love the pattern and would like to make some for my soon-to-be grandaughter. I think the one you knitted looks great!

Rain said...

Sherry ~ thanks for the compliment. The pattern is from a book called Knit Socks! by Betsy Lee McCarthy. The book, interestingly, is shaped like a sock too =)
