Addison and her Red Socks

Oh. My. Gosh.
It didn't take me long to start knitting for this adorable grandchild of DH's. Now I know what all the fussing over a grandchild is about. :)
I measured her little feet (slightly longer than 4") and knit these with Cascade 220 Superwash Wool, casting on with US sz 5 dpn's and did a hem-top picot edge. I then switched to US sz 6 dpn's for the rest of the sock.
I'm just about finished with a cardigan I designed especially for her that I'm knitting in the round with steeks. That will be another post.........and soon, too!

What a beautiful baby Maria! The socks are awfully cute too. (My grandchildren wear fur and say meow, so no knitting for them. They'd most likely eat it anyway.) I can't wait to see the finished sweater for little Addison and find out how you handled steeks. I'm not brave enough to cut my hard work yet.

Maria, Addison is so beautiful and so are the socks you made for her! Can't wait to see the sweater. What are Steeks? This is the second time I have seen that word today!
