First Sock Machine projects

January 2, 2010

Socks knit for my grandson and  leggings for  my granddaughter, both almost three.    The tubes were knit on the CSM, then afterthought heels and toes and ribbing done by hand.   Matching the stripe patterns was a little difficult as it involves counting rows and finding the right spot on the repeat to begin the second piece.  I am not much of a hand-knitter, but love knitted things!

Time to try a set of socks turning heels and toes on the machine.

    Very cool!! I just saw hand-knit socks with different color toes and heels done after knitting the rest of the sock.

    Leggings seem like a great idea for a 3 year old.

    The leggings are quite a hit with the preschool set, hey? I too have been making them for my 5-year-old granddaughter – the slow way with my “pokeys” as her 3-year-old brother calls my bamboo dpns. You are lucky though if yours don’t always have to be “peeeennnk”!
