Another new project? After vowing to finish three projects this month? I know ... but after finishing one, a baby blanket for an expecting friend, I saw these adorable snake socks in Sue Whiting's book, Cute Knits for Baby Feet. I couldn't resist making these as a "big brother" present! And yes, these were fast--you could make these in a single day if you have the luxury of knitting without the frequent interruptions of little ones! :-D
Pattern: Snake Socksss by Sue Whiting (size 3/4)
Needles: Size 3 and size 6 straight needles
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool, approx. 1/3 of each skein (this pattern would be an excellent stashbuster!)
Modifications: I omitted about seven rows of the stripe repeat on the leg portion of the sock. It just seemed long enough already! I don't regret that decision--they are almost knee socks even with my modification!
The verdict? Fun and adorable! My model liked them so much, I just might have to make another pair for her!
