Some little treasures

Picture 3037

Today Miss 3, Miss 1 and I are all wearing handknit socks. Even though I’ve got more than enough on my knitting ‘plate’, I just could not resist making Miss 1 a teensy pair of Mini Monkey socks. This pattern is the no-purl version, and so cute!

I used up some leftovers, this is Vintage Purls yarn, in a colourway called JOY, exclusive to Joy of Yarn in Greytown. A specialist sock yarn shop. I’m hoping to visit there in real life this month (!) but am not holding my breath – I need a few other things to fall into place first. But they are offering a sock knitting workshop I’d love to attend.  I have even a tiny bit more, so perhaps Miss 1 has some stripy socks in her future.

But these will do for now.

And in sweater news, my CPH is making slow progress still. Sunday morning saw me attempting to tink the cable. Despite the helpful links, it was a wash.  The combination of slightly hairy yarn, and a massive column of stitches meant there were twists and bits where I could not see what was happening, so I had to frog the front back 10 inches to where the mistake was. That’s all fixed, and the body is seamed, hood knit, and I’ve got the stitches for one band cast on. It is waiting patiently for me while I knit away on a surprise for a swap I’m meant to be sending away on Friday. Eek, that’s tomorrow, and I have a feeling mine will not be ready on time.

On Tuesday I went button shopping for my CPH. I bought these, and love them, but I think I might use toggles on this hoodie instead, and put them away for another project.

PS. It’s sooo much easier to photograph buttons than baby feet.

    Cute, cute, cute! Makes me kinda want to have another little one so that I can knit wee little things for her (or him. I’m easy).

    Those mini monkeys are the cutest wee socks I’ve ever seen!! What a fantastic job 🙂 My babies are 4 and 6 now (and boys) so I can’t really get away with making a pair, so I’ll just enjoy looking at your girls ones instead – they’re so sweet.

    Love the buttons too btw!
