Much to my amazement, 100g of 4-ply from my inherited stash has yielded not only 2 socks, but also 2 hats and 4 bootees!
This picture shows the first and second socks which I previously posted on here:
|A pair of very comfy and already much loved socks!|
Now, even though at the end of my last post I said I was going to knit the second sock and then take a break from knitting whilst I made a wedding gift for my niece, I felt it was okay just to delay that slightly longer when a friend had twin girls at 33/34 weeks. Having had a premature baby myself, I remember the importance of getting tiny clothes which are a snug fit and really keep them warm, so I set to and knitted as fast as I could! The hats were knitted from this pattern - however I didn't follow it exactly (partly through design, and partly through inattention!) and the bootees are an old favourite which I have posted about in the past here. To make them even smaller, I knitted with 3.25mm needles in 4-ply rather than my usual 4mm needles and double knit. I had also 'shrunk' the pattern in the past so already had a smaller version to follow!
God willing, I will be sharing this on Ginny's Yarn Along later today - why not pop over and see what other knitters are up to or maybe share something that you are knitting.
