After waiting a couple months, I finally ordered the rest of the yarn needed to complete this little pair of socks:
When I first started them, I was so proud of myself because I was “stash busting.” It didn’t take long for me to realize that I didn’t have enough yarn to finish the second sock. (I was originally working with a partial skein left over from Eva’s Gnome Hat.) I put the socks in hibernation since I wasn’t ready to make a large purchase, and I wasn’t about to pay shipping for one skein, either. 🙂 When the time came, I ended up ordering two more skeins of this particular yarn (Knit Picks Felici Fingering in “Mixed Berries”) so that sometime in the future, I can make myself a matching pair of socks, too.
I used this pattern and size 2.5mm dpns. I modified the pattern to make the socks a little larger since Eva has big feet. I cast on 40 stitches and knit a 5 inch foot. Since it’s the middle of the night, I haven’t had the chance to force Eva to wear them, so I don’t know if they fit. We’ll find out tomorrow, I’m sure.
