Back in February I posted about how I signed up to be a Sock Fairy to the little one of a friend. As winter was around the corner, back in October, her mom brought me a note and the silk tapestry bag the first pair had been delivered in. She was ready for a new pair and included a skein of yarn and a little note that read:
“Dear Honey Willowdancer – Could you please knit me a new pair of socks – bigger than the other ones. I wanted to know if you know how to make mittens or hats. P.S. The yarn is for you to use! Size 8 (with a heart and her signature on back)”
Last night I FINALLY finished them and today dropped them off in the mailbox so they’d be waiting for her when she got home from pre-school. I hope they fit. I was using a pair of socks her mom gave me to go by but I’m not very good at winging it and much prefer to have actual foot measurements. Next time I’ll get them though.
And I have the perfect handspun yarn from OnTheRound to make her a hat. I have yet to make mittens (yep, you read that right I have never knit a pair of mittens) so those might have to wait.
