my baby's got class (socks)

I finished the Class Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks, my first ever knit socks. They turned out really well, and they were fun and easy. Check it out...

Wicked Cute Baby Feet Wearing Hand Knit Socks


Yes, Baby is also wicked tired in those shots. Here she's looking a little more lively while modeling the socks.

One more shot without the wicked cute baby distracting you from the cuteness of the socks...


Knit on 2 size 6 circulars (ghetto style) in Henry's Attic Gaia 100% Organic Merino Wool. Because I was using what was left of the skein after finishing my Cloud Bolero, I only made the cuff 2 inches instead of the 3 the pattern calls for.

Oh, and though she happily wore them, the socks are actually a bit small on Baby (who's almost 19 months old). Plus, they're way too slippery for her as she runs around on our hard wood floors. Plus it's summer here, so she doesn't need to wear wool socks. So I'm sending them on to a younger baby who will fit in them perfectly this winter, and most likely won't be walking yet.

WOW! Your first set of socks came out beautifully! I use the sensational knitted socks book and it really helped me make sense of sock knitting. Gave me a huge confidence boost in that area.

Can't wait to see what your do for your next socks!
