These are the socks I’m currently knitting for James. The FIRST pair I’ve found the time to knit for my five-year-old. I was knitting these for a store sample, and James really liked them.
The socks are made from two colors, knitting one color repeat (red,orange,yellow) from one skein and then switching to the other skein for one color repeat (emerald, red-violet, purple).
This is going to be available as part of SSYC’s upcoming 2013 St. Patty’s Day kit, and it’s likely the skeins will be sold later separately in 2013.
I finished these socks, but then found I made them to long for James. So I frogged out about an inch or so, and then finished. THen I found they were STILL TOO LONG (sigh) and so it will probably be another shoe size til they fit.
