Monday, June 30

Not this month....

I just couldn't do it... I was going to let June pass by with no socks complete. But then around 4 in the afternoon I just couldn't live with myself if I let June slip by. I've been participating in the Sock a Month KAL for 10 months and June will make it 11. I've made a pair each month... and last month did 2 pair. I just couldn't let this month go. I want to make it to a year and beyond, I love socks!

So anyways I CO for these baby socks because I knew I wouldn't be able to finish the adult ones that I've been working on. (I'm doing the Froot loop pattern from

So here are the project stats:

Start Date:June 30th (4pm)
End date: June 30th (9:30pm)
Yarn: Cascade 220
Pattern:Basic sock: 2x2 rib cuff, Sl st heel flap, Stst foot
Needles: Addi turbo US#3, 2 circulars

All in all I think they took only a couple of hours here and there to knit....! I'm happy with them and I'll post pics of them on Chloe's feet in the morning. For now this will have to do.

here they are on her feet... a bit tight....oops! maybe they will be a gift for someone else... who has or will be having a baby boy?!

Oh for those of you on Ravelry.... go check out my latest FO!!! I'm super excited about it. For those of you who are not on Ravelry I'll be posting about it here in a week or so after I gift it to a friend... you just have to be patient!

I'm so glad you were able to crank out a pair and get your last credit. They are so cute too.

Your secret project is fabulous. The recipient is going to be so thrilled.

Doesn't SAM make you want to do socks even more? You just want to get that initial beside your name - a silly goal - but a goal nonetheless! Baby socks count too!

You're too funny with the last minute socks! I love the Raverly FO!! It's beautiful! What a perfect gift.

What cute little socks! I haven't had 5 hours to myself, at all, in the last 2 weeks, to have even attempt that kind of project. I've been working so much.

The secret gift is gorgeous! You did a great job!

Cute tiny socks! I just cast on a pair for my son, and am not sure if I have enough stitches on the needle. How many did you do for these? I'm using cascade fixation. I guess after a bit I'll try them on him to see how they fit. Good work!
