So I’ve started up some new kid knitting. I realize it will take a while to make lots of warm things for Lukas this winter so I should start now. Of course I began with socks. The socks pictured here were made from wool and of course ended up washed so I now have a lovely pair of felted baby booties to give to one of four friends who have new babies!

I do believe it’s easier to learn to make socks if you start with toddler socks since they knit up pretty fast. Then after a few socks, you have an idea what is happening. At first, I was just following along with the pattern and thinking “How is this happening? Look, it looks like a heel!” as the sock magically becomes a sock.

Now I am working on the fitted toddler legwarmers in a beautiful green wool. Next up is the soaker (wool diaper cover) which I think will be purple and green to match! Then more socks (in a washable yarn…), then a cardigan and a hat. We’ll see what actually happens. Those are my best laid plans!

I really love knitting. It feels so great to make something for my son to wear. I slid one of the green legwarmers on his leg to test the fit yesterday and when I took it off, he looked at it and made his sign for more, meaning to put it on again! It was so cute! I love that he is communicating now! And saying such great things.
