Starry Socks
Magic Loop Sock Tutorial by Kelley Petkun
Needles & yarn
Yarn Bee Walk Away Sock Bamboo/Wool
none left in stash
1 skein = 231.0 yards (211.2 meters), 50 grams

I received this yarn from mimzy2 as part of the Secret Partner 10$ swap, and decided to use it for a pair of toddler socks.

Socks are just my standard magic loop, using the directions from Kelley at KnitPicks (love those free videos).

For sizing: I measured around the widest part of her foot, and came up with 6.5 inches…. so minus 1” of negative ease gives me 5.5”…. and with a gauge of 6 st/in, that gives me 33 stitches to cast one. I rounded up to 36 stitches for an even number for the ribbing.

A note about the pictures: Emma was THRILLED to model her socks (see this project), and as evidenced by the photos.. Katie was not. Giving mommy the “stink-eye” as we refer to it…. {Mommy} “No, no Katie.. not angry eyebrows… HAPPY EYEBROWS!!!”
