I finished the socks I was knitting for an infant I am watching for a few months. Altho’ these went pretty fast (because they are small :P), they really were not small enough to be newborn, they would probably fit more like a 12 to 18 month old. But maybe it’s because I used a baby yarn that is a bit thicker than a sock yarn.
So, to give this pattern the benefit of the doubt, I picked up a sock yarn from Hobby Lobby (they were having a 30% off all their yarn sale this week :)). It is Premier Yarns, color Vegas Lights and is acrylic, so her mom can just throw it in the washer and dryer. I will give this another try before I move on to another pattern. I’m interested to see how the colors work up in a very small pair of socks. Wondering if I can even get all the colors in one little sock or if I will have to do yarn management to get them to turn out more or less the same. Otherwise she can be like the teens and have mismatched socks, which have been the rage for more than several years.
I haven’t seen the robins yet, but maybe I just missed them? I usually see the males staking out small territories they then defend from other males so they can try to lure a female Robin to their area. The females show up 2 weeks after the males. I expect to see the male Robins very soon, we have been having upper 40’s and lower 50’s days , it is so wonderful!! I love Spring!
