The Quickie Socks truly were a quick knit. But that's what one would expect when knitting in worsted wool.
Pattern: Quickie Socks from The Joy of Sox
Yarn: I'm not sure but it is red worsted
Needles: US4 DPNs
Modifications: Unless you include modifications to correct the errors in the pattern, none.
I was afraid these were going to be too small, but once bathed and blocked, they proved to be plenty big for my daughter. I think the yarn is superwash wool, but I can't find the ball band. Since the color did not bleed, I will knit up a quick swatch and throw it into the laundry tomorrow to see if it felts. Better safe than sorry.
Meanwhile, I went in search of baby-appropriate yarn. The following Lorna's Laces is in the process of becoming a baby afghan.
And this Ella Rae Classic will become a crayon-colored blanket.
And why do I need baby-appropriate yarn? Because I am going to be a GRANDMA!!!
