January FOs

My Finished Objects during January: 2 pairs of socks, 2 hats and I sewed the buttons on a sweater for Abigail that has been otherwise finished for a year!

My mom’s socks using Vermont O-wool:

The pattern is the Padded Footlets from Favorite Socks but without the padding.

My niece’s socks (if anyone knows her please don’t tell her I knit her socks!)

I used less than one skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepard Sport in Sweetie for a child’s shoe size 1 (an 8 yr-old).

Our “Thorpes“:

We’ve been wearing them constantly in this cold weather so I haven’t had a chance to take a picture of them without a model. This picture is a little preview of our weekend–more to come soon!

I used Cascade Eco for Terry’s and made the large with no modifications. I did one extra crown increase (past the large size) on mine since the Nashua Vignette seemed to be knitting up a little smaller than I planned (what’s a swatch? 🙂 ) and I was determined to finally have a hat that would cover my ears!

Sorry no picture of the sweater with the buttons attached! The buttons are little white flowers. Abigail was napping while I worked on this and I decided I had better measure it to make sure it wasn’t going to be too small for her to wear. I knit the 6 month size (according to my prior post) and the sweater measures bigger around than the 12 month and in between the 6 & 12-month for the length. As soon as I finished I put it on Abigail and ran out the door to a Sunday afternoon party last week. I had to roll the sleeves up a little and it is pretty big around on her too. I’m so glad it will fit her for a while longer!
