her second sock

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Well, my Libby will be headed back to Boulder for her second semester on Saturday.  Oh, how I loved this winter break.  It truly is such a joy to see your children grow.
I finished her second sock and am so grateful that she loves them so much.  She pledged Delta Gamma in the fall and pink and blue are the sorority colors.  I am so grateful my kids love their hand knits... and like I said, this hand knit is a dream to take care of.  Machine wash and dry.  Perfect for college kids!
And how cute are these jeans?!  We bought them at Francesca's but I think they would be fun to make.  You probably just need a little bit of patience with all that fraying.

Pattern:  Home Ankle Socks
Yarn:  Lion Brand Wool Ease, 1 ball or 2 balls for contrasting
Needles:  Size 5

  1. Way back when the dinosaurs roamed, the DG colors were bronze, pink and blue. I don't know when bronze was jettisoned but the pink and blue socks are adorable.

  2. Libby still is a pro at modeling knitwear. You may get orders from sorority sisters after they see these.

    This is a great pair. I like how you have that distressed chair for photos. When I did Frankie's photo shoot, I had to try out other ideas because our chairs are too modern or new looking.
