FO Report: Sweetpea's Knee Socks

Pattern: My own - toe up, slip stitch heel
Yarn: KnitPicks Felici, Firefighter
Needles: Knitpicks Options, US 2
Started: December 18, 2007
Finished: December 25, 2007

Sweetpea wanted me to knit her some socks and specified they were to come all the way up to her knees! I used just under one skein total for both socks, and they are a little large on her size 6 Toddler feet. Once I got past the toe, I had 48 stitches on the needle and could have gone down to 44 or even 40 probably. But I figured these will last through a couple of growth spurts. Nothing fancy here, just 2 x 2 ribbing on the instep and leg. I have another skein left, so I may knit some regular length socks for Monkeyboy.

Still to come: FO reports on the Apple Socks, plus thigh high socks for Monkeyboy!
