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. Z 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.
I’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?
