Now let me take a minute to show you my very Firsts:
My very first sweater, not nice, but wearable. It is now my favorite knock around "sweatshirt". My first pair of socks are toddler size. You should have seen my daughter trying with all her might to squeeze her feet into them. So I thought I would make it again, but a little larger and I ended up with socks that fit me. I haven't a clue how to size socks yet, obviously. And now I am trying again.
The sweater and socks are made with knitpicks Shine worsted. Very soft and comfy, although tends to pill and shed quite a bit. I used "North Country Cotton Baby Socks" Pattern.
This time around I am using a pattern for "2 socks on one circular" and trying to make it small enough for my 6 year old. I am using a self striping Sockotta yarn, which is great fun! I used the "magic toe" cast on, which is fabulous. I will always use that! But the pattern uses a short row heel and I really don't like it. At least so far. It doesn't look as nice as the heels in the top down pattern I made before. Any favorite heels styles out there?
