Pink toes

baby feetWe had a couple of cold nights and I immediately wished I had made some baby socks for Charlotte, so I made some. These are some scrappy socks. I used a teeny bit of leftover Colinette Jitterbug in Whirley Fig and some Louet Gems Fingering Weight in Pewter. Working from the toe-up I cast on 12 stitches (6 per side) and increased the toes until I had 32 stitches total. Then I knit for about four inches and then did an inch of ribbing and cast off. These are plain ol’ tube socks so she can wear them through the winter as her feet grow. baby feet-4They fit well, but next time I might make them a smidge wider. I suppose she could also wear them as mittens if needed. baby feet-2Charlotte was 4 months old on the 16th and she’s a pretty happy little lady. Unless she’s looking at me like I’m a weirdo for taking her picture: baby feet-3I haven’t been as responsive to blog comments as I’d like to be and I’m sorry for that. I love reading your comments and greatly appreciate them. I’ve been back at work for 3 weeks and it’s definitely mentally taxing. In my other work life I’m a school based therapist at a school I adore. It is a wonderful job and most of the time but I often leave feeling like my brain has had a big workout all day long, so I’m not as active with responses as I’d like. I will always try my best to get at least one or two blog posts out a week because I love love love doing it. When I started this thing I really didn’t think anyone would read it, and I feel completely chuffed that people do, that I’ve made some friends from doing this, and I’ve also learned from a wonderful and vibrant community of knitters out in the world. I appreciate being part of the conversation.

  1. Love the idea of growing with the baby tube socks. Charlotte is adorable. I think you are doing great, working with a baby and a little girl is tiring, but all worth it 🙂

  2. Love seeing pictures of your cutie pies! Isn’t it fab that as knitters we can whip up warm hugs (socks to muggles) for our loved ones.

  3. Cassy, I get so excited when I see a new blog post from you in my feed!! I was sad when you took more time between posts after you had Charlotte! I wish I could knit socks up as fast as you!!

    I got my ruffaluffagus (why does that look weird!) finished with the smaller yarn and bigger size I asked you about awhile ago – it is the cutest thing ever! I’m super happy with it!

  4. Hi!
    I don’t often write comments. But I do follow your blog. It’s one of my favorite 🙂
    I like your knittings, your creations. They always look very pro.
    And, I also like the way you write and the way you “approach” life. Reading your messages is always nice and soothing.
    Sorry for not writing more. I’ll try.
    Keep on going and kisses to your lovely children.

  5. Don’t worry about not being able to replying to every single comment. Yeah, sure, I’m always happy if I get an answer from you – but if you want to reply to all of us, that’s gonna take ages! I’m glad that you (still) enjoy your job so much! 🙂

    Your blog postings are great and I am always happy if there is something new to read from you. 🙂

    The socks are really cute! Very ladylike with the pink and anthrazit-combination. 🙂
