The Bitty sock

It seems like just yesterday I said I'd show you my bitty socks. Of course Bitty thinks they are hers and she was intent on getting into the photo opt.
I do a lot of my projects with fingering yarn and I always have a little yarn left over. These are done using #2 needles and are simply knit in stockinette with a rib cuff. The yarn is thin enough to fit in a shoe or boot without being too tight for comfort.

I have a gram scale so I weigh the yarn and try not to use more than half of it. That way I can make 2 socks exactly alike. Here in N.E. they are the perfect thing to wear over your tights to keep you warm. If you dare venture outside.............................said the hobbit

Your socks are always so beautiful! The colors are amazing and make they very special.

Is Bitty going to vote today?
