I cast on 52 stitches but note to myself on the next pair i can go down about 8 stitches atleast knitting with that combo of yarn.
They do however look pretty nice if I can say so myself.
These are a pair of childrens socks, well no its not yet a pair...........
Its one of each of what are suposed to be two pairs of childrens socks in size 1 - 2 y old and 2-4 y old but I started and finished one sock (the biggest one) but in the mean time I got some new yarn I was so keen to try that I started on the smaller sized sock so I could test it out so thats why I have one of each but as I m typing I have already started on the 2nd sock to 1-2 y old sized sock they will get theire matching partner soon.
I placed my knitting needles "around" the sock so you could see the size in proportion too.
The 1-2 y old socks is knitted in Katia merino 100% [ 100% merino superwash in grey , colour 505 ]
mixed with Katia Darling pure merino wool superwash [60% virgin wool and 40% polyamid , colour 206 ]
The 2-4 y old sized socks is knitted in Step 6 in blue ish colours and some different blue and turqouise thin alpaca wool in the striped on the rib.
