Size 3 Toddler Sock
Here is one of the little socks I finished tonight. I cast on for the second one in the car as I was waiting for Gary to get out of the bookstore. The yarn is Victorian Christmas and it is a merino/silk. I love this yarn, it is so vivid. I know Eli is going to stare at his feet for a long time with this sock. I am using US 2 needles and my gauge is 6 sts and 10.5 rows = 1 inch.
I have a 1 inch cuff with a 3.5 inch leg. The heel is eye of partridge for texture and the heel is a round one. The toe is a regular one with a grafted toe. I like to do simple socks if the mood strikes. I just love how well this one turned out and it looks like a big person's sock but, in miniature. I even jokingly told Gary that I could make a bunch of these up and hang them all over my Christmas tree. Wouldn't that just be the cutest thing?
