Pairs 1 & 2
... I had fallen behind (and I am only midway through week 2 -- not a really encouraging sign!), so I spent some time on the weekend knitting, and made a quick pair of toddler socks . The red socks are made of Tresco Garn, leftovers from the first pair of socks I ever knit (5 years ago!), and I am not sure who they'll be for. They are pretty scratchy and rough, hopefully they soften up a bit when I wash them (too scratchy for a child!) -- they may just be a decoration to hang on a shelf!
The other pair are my Austerman Step socks -- I am so happy to be done them (finally) ... I love the colours and am so happy they ended up being mine. I am calling them my "Whiskys" after the colour name. They are just a simple ribbed cuff, stocking stitch sock with a short row heel. I finished them on Sunday night, but didn't take a picture of them until just now ... lazy/busy!
Everyone is making such pretty socks ... I have to start searching for the next pattern to make! I am totally inspired!
