February Socks

I finished my February pair of socks just in time for me to start on my Olympic knitting. These socks are for my sister, Lisa (aka "loser" in the comments).

Pattern: Child's First Socks from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks.
Yarn: Fortissima Socka
Some thoughts: I would definitely use this yarn again. I really enjoyed working with it. The pattern was also great. I thought it would tie me down to the book, but the shell pattern was really easy to memorize. It was very intuitive and I could knit on these "mindlessly" even though it looks complicated. I hope Lisa likes them!
Here's a pic of Big Apple. I was in the bathroom and when I came out, Frog had given her a lollipop! She was so cute with it that I let her keep it.


  1. That's so cute! Tristan was fond of giving Caroline Pop-Tarts. I think it's still why she loves him so much.

  2. oh what a cutie! i be tyou just want to kiss her and hug her all the time!
    those socks are wonderful! i may have to get that book i have her knitting on the road book and i love it... jess gave it to me actually!

  3. Your socks are awesome! I'm going to get that book as soon as I'm done working through Knitting On The Road. And your daughter is just such a cutie!

  4. The socks are great! Is that your daughter? She is sooooo cute!!!

  5. Those socks look great, but your daughter is even prettier!

  6. Big Apple is indeed my daughter and I agree...she is soooo cute!

  7. Your socks are beautiful, but your little one is more so! What a sweetie! :)

  8. Have I mentioned lately that I want your baby? I don't mean that in a creepy, baby-snatching way -- I just want a clone of her.
