These socks are all knit from the sock blank I received from Melanie in the Ravelry Dyed Swap Blank Swap Group. Here is the post about the swap, and the picture of the blank as I received it. I loved how it knitted up! I think I've said it here before, but it reminds me of Impressionism.
I started my socks (toe up of course), and knitted them as tall as I wanted. When I looked at how much sock blank there was left, I thought I could probably knit a pair of socks for Sweetpea with it. Both pair were knit Magic Loop style, two at a time, toe up with a Turkish cast on, Eye of Partridge heel, 3 x 1 ribbing at the top, and EZ's Stretchy Sewn Bind Off.
I sort of guessed on the sock size for Sweetpea, as she was asleep when I started them. They fit, but barely. I'm sure she'll outgrow them before winter is over, and possibly before it even gets here.
