I’ve decided to become a sock fairy – fun idea right?! I know a little 4-year-old who recently got her first pair of hand knit socks and loves them. So when I was looking for a project to start last weekend I decided that I’d make a pair for her with the leftover yarn from socks (Malibrigio) I made for myself. As I was thinking about whether or not to wrap them to give I decided that getting hand knit socks from a sock fairy would be so much more fun. She doesn’t know they are coming yet but her mom reads this blog so she’ll know where they came from. The photo below has the socks they sock fairy made on top of the ones I knit for me – they are so little
Then I bumped into a school-mate at the grocery store who has a little girl too. I mentioned that she needed a sock fairy. Turns out her mom knits every except socks. So when I get her little feet measurements I’m going to make her a pair of socks too.
In other knitting news, I finished this hat for Ra. I wish I hadn’t done the Quaker rib in the middle but I do like the contrasting colors of O-Wool that she picked out.
