The first pair of socks are done

first handknitted spiral socks

Actually they’ve been done for a while but this is the best picture I’ve been able to get since the girl appropriated them. She wears them constantly but has been rather coy about allowing me to take a picture. And they look positively silly without feet in them. The pattern is free from from Vintage Purls. I did make a number of modifications (see my project notes on Ravelry if you are really interested in making this sock for children) for size and just because I can’t follow directions to the letter even if I’m doing something for the first time. It’s a disease I’m sure.

    She is *such* an imp! And don’t I know it, lol.

    The socks are very cool. Hasn’t the boy asked for his own yet?

    Adorable socks and girl!
    And I seem to suffer from that same disease! A mark of the truly creative, I like to think. Make things your own, always.
