Warm and Toasty FO

When Jacob asks for socks, he gets ’em.

Pattern: Basic 52-stitch socks, 3×1 rib

Yarn: Sundara Sock, Bronzed Forest

Time Elapsed: Something like a week or two

Notes/Modifications: This is a made-up pattern, so modifications are nil, although I did notice that the 48-stitch ones are getting a little small. But still, no earth-shaking anything to say about these socks.

(He asked for them, and pestered me about them while I was knitting them. And then said he wouldn’t wear them for photos, and when he relented and put them on he hid his feet.)

He said he’d only let me get some proper shots of them if I wore socks and took pictures of my socks, too.

The Sundara is leftover from Daniel’s Tomten, which is still sitting on my dressform waiting for a zipper. I’ll get around to it before he outgrows the thing, I promise. It’s a lovely color, the Bronzed Forest, and Sundara’s sock yarn was nice to work with as always.

And really, there’ nothing cozier than a snuggly family in hand-knits, right?

  12. Awwwwww! Beautiful socks all around!

  13. Adorable! I get a bit too sidetracked and I’m not sure I’d finish a pair of socks before the intended child grew out of them. It doesn’t help that they’re all shooting up like weeds…
