Little Sky Sock

Well, I got Cat Bordhi's "New Pathways For Sock Knitters" a while ago and I decided it was time to try something from it. So I did the logical thing and made the first project in it, the "Little Sky Sock," which is a small-scale learning sock. It is meant to teach you the basic techniques you'll need to know in order to make a full size version of the same style sock.

This all seemed fine and good but then I wondered what I would do with this one, lone sock. Then it dawned on me that my co-worker/friend's brother is having twins. So I have made a pair of these socks. I will also be making a pair from the "Little Coriolis" pattern, which is another learning sock.

This will work out well since I will get plenty of practice on two diferent types of "sockitectures" and I will have two gifts when I'm done. Nice!

So here is a look at the first pair of socks. It's not the best picture because I took it under artifical light. But I wanted to get this posted while I had time tonight, so it'll have to do for now. I made these both today and they were very fun to make, different than other socks that I have made and knit up quickly. I'm looking forward to making a full-size pair with some of the new sock yarn that I just got!

Nice work. One of these days I should get me a copy of that book.
