K is for ...

Knitting, obviously! One could say krazy knitting since I'm once again attempting to knit a pair of socks for the bean. Okay, let's be honest here. I am knitting the second practice pair, the little coriolis, in Cat Bordhi's book, but it seems better to say that I am knitting for Lady Bean than just farting around with a new pattern and some cheap yarn. Moving on, I have one sock done and it took me two hours.

It fits! There is even a little extra room in the toe area which seems promising in the whole "actually can wear them" department.

Now lets hope I can find another two hours in the near future to finish the second sock. This pair is significantly bigger than the last pair I knit (since I am using much cheaper, but much thicker, yarn), so I have high hopes that I will finish them before she outgrows them.

That's the trouble with knitting for wee ones ... they grow faster than we can knit, LOL. Good luck!

Oh what a precious little foot! Her sock designs are so clever and unique. I knit her blanket (throw) pattern a few years back and it came out amazing.
