It’s time to add a small project to my “In Progress” list since it is getting a little difficult to work on the sweater during my bus commute.
When I ordered the yarn for my Latvian mittens last summer from The Wooly West I also ordered a sock pattern called Whisper Rib and Shepard’s Lace Socks by Anne Carroll. I’ve been thinking about making Lily a pair of pink lace socks for a while so I’ll try to adapt this pattern to fit her. Like almost ever other little girl that I know, Lily loves pink so I’ve selected Shepherd Sock Yarn in Pink Blossom from Lorna’s Laces.
This summer I knit her a pair of striped socks, which have now become her favorites. The other day her mother mentioned that she likes to display the socks by wearing them with her “mary jane” shoes.
