August Socks

It’s about time I posted these. I finally got Miss Bug to put them on. She decided that she should get to put her feet up for the photo like I used to at the old house, so she facilitated a space for that.

She’s in that tween space where her feet are very long, actually adult sized feet now, but not wide enough to wear adult sized shoes. I left a little bit of room for growth in the toes as she’s not done growing yet!

For these, I did a short row heel. I then tried a short row toe and kitchenered over the top of the foot, but she HATED the way that felt on her foot. So, I did the second sock with a round toe. Once that received her approval, I cut the toe of the other sock off, and added a round toe to it.

The yarn was artyarns ultramerino 4. I got it in a trade MANY moons ago. It was very thin, and not overly exciting to work with. But, since her little legs are thin, I could do an adult sized sock on tiny needles and have a sock that fits her properly.
