Alright- the last of the homemade Christmas presents. But, the ones I spent the most time on. Socks! I know, socks sound like the most boring kid Christmas present ever. But all three of these kids have been begging for me to knit them socks since I went a little sock crazy this summer. Literally, begging for handmade socks. So, I ordered some fantastic yarn (KnitPicks Felici) and started knitting. Each pair only took a skein- well, with the help of some contrast heels and toes on Anna's. I finished Sam's pair early in October, Ellery's in mid-December, and Anna's late on December 23rd. They ripped into them Christmas morning, squealed in delight and immediately put them off. I don't think they left their feet for the next three days or so.
I am very pleased with how they turned out. Especially since I couldn't have them try them on during the entire knitting process.
