K and I were having the most no-good, rotten, horrible day. Fighting and arguing about everything. Nothing was making either of us happy. And then I finished the first sock of this pair, and handed it over for him to try on. He was elated and his angry words quickly became "mama, i love you for making me socks."
Pattern: On-Your-Toes socks from Interweave Knits Summer 2007
Notes: see the other socks finished two posts back.
I had just enough yarn left from my socks to make socks for the gremlin. seriously, there were about 8 inches left when all was said and done. i used their sockula (sock-formula) for these, but ended up going a bit smaller. Eight cast on stitches for the toe, increased to 48 stitches for the body equals a toddlers size 9 with enough room to grow.
I think i'll enter this in the contest over at Stash and Burn.
