Fast baby feet!

I pictured all kinds of cute mother/daughter poses for these matching socks, but in the end, Matt shot what he could as fast as he could, and we got a couple of somewhat clear shots. mama and baby feetZ and I are wearing our matching Prufrock socks. For hers, I used my Kiddo Kicks pattern, increased by 2 stitches (one on instep, one on sole) for the 1-3 yr size, and I left out one repeat of the wave stitch in the Prufrocks.

mama and baby feet-2I’ve only made her straight stockinette socks up to this point. I’m quite enamored with the look of her little patterned feet. I didn’t have enough yarn to make her a 3-inch cuff like I would have wanted, but I think they’ll be cute as ankle socks too.

This was part of my Ravellenic 2014 goals. I sort of flopped on my stated goals from the last paragraph of this post. I did complete the Hundertwasser socks, these Prufrocks for Z, I started new socks for Matt and got past the gusset pickups (going toe-up two-at-a-time) and I finished the knitting on the Pensacola Sweater for the film Tell Them of Us. That sweater is blocking right now, and I will do the seaming in the next couple of days. I did a lot of knitting, but I thought I would be making arm warmers for all of us, and I ended up focusing on socks. I did want to have Pensacola ready to ship by today, but it’s close enough to make me feel satisfied.  I had a little bit of a carrot on a stick to inspire me to finish, since I purchased the pattern for Wispers, but I wouldn’t allow myself to cast it on before finishing Pensacola… More about that soon.

Happy Monday! Did you all meet any Ravellenic goals?

  1. I am in love with your socks both the big ones and the mini leftover socks. thanks so much for sharing a picture. I am sure your daughter is proud of her just-like-mommy socks.

  2. I would like to knit the socks for my daughter. Would I have to by both the kiddo socks and the prufrock pattern? Does the prufrock pattern include a kid’s size?

    • Dawn, I just wanted you to know that getting out that pattern is still on my to-do list. I’ve been very swamped with dissertation edits the past couple of weeks, so I haven’t been able to get to it as quickly as I anticipated. It’s definitely coming though. Just wanted to follow up with you.
