Or maybe I should call these however high they are before the yarn runs out socks. These are for Katrina and when I told her I was making her knee socks she said they should go over her knees. Hmm, is that an appropriate look for a four year old? I think she’s hoping they’ll poke out a little from under her boots.
I went to my non-favorite but closer LYS on Wednesday to get some yarn to start a Christmas gift and left with this Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino instead — they did not have the yarn I needed or any reasonable substitute. The colorway is called bright — if that’s not an understatement I don’t know what is. I’m using Kate Gilbert‘s generic sock pattern and doing the whole thing — except the heel and toe — in a 2×2 rib. If the yarn starts to get scarce I might do the heel and toe in a solid color. Still a ways to go before I worry about that though.
