Now, I feel like Spring is here.
I'm supposed to be taking a break from knitting while I wait for Round 2 of Sock Madness to begin. But, my Godson and his Bride are expecting their first baby, my sister's first Grand-Daughter, and my first Grand-Niece (ha ha ha I have 3 Grand-Nephews). The baby shower is this weekend, so I needed to get something finished super fast.
I made the Mermaid costume for this baby
The white and pink socks are just miniature adult socks. They have ribbed legs, slip stitch heel flaps, and gussets.
I wanted the striped socks to last a bit longer, so I cast on 28 stitches for each sock. They have a short row heel, and I used the Fish Lips Kiss method of "wrapping" really not wrapping the stitches in the short rows.
shaping the planet with 3 more pair of socks! (ok, they are tiny, but still socks)
