This Wednesday I’ll be sharing a look at one of my current wips. It’s a pair of baby socks made with Holiday Yarns Flock Sock. I’m making them for my friend Emily who is pregnant with her first child. She’s part of my weekly knit/crochet group and I’m breaking my “will not knit or crochet baby gifts” rule just for her.
These little socks should fit a 6 to 12 month old and they’re a great project for leftover yarn since each sock only takes about 35 yards. Even using a D-hook, they’re a pretty fast project- I finished one last night while at a mandatory school assembly. They’re toe-up construction, and I decided to put picots on the cuff. Picots are girly, but I think spacing the picots out a little keeps it from being too froufrou.
The yarn I used was Flock Sock from Holiday Yarns. It’s 75% superwash wool 25% nylon sold in 400 yard put ups (that’s a lot of baby socks). They’ve got a great range of colorways, some self-striping. I love how vibrant the Sunset colorway is. Sunset was inspired by Jennifer’s (the dyer’s) daughter and you can read the story behind it here.
Wondering what I did with the other 330 yards of the skein of Flock Sock yarn? 🙂 I’m not telling just yet, but I will say that it’s going to be a great addition to the Poetry in Yarn pattern line.
