When the Circus Comes to Town

Remember that awesome Tiny Toes I showed not long ago that my SP13 pal sent me? I turned half of it into these:



Circus Socks for Dudette



Too cute, huh?

I cast on 48 stitches on a 40" 2.25mm needle (KnitPicks Harmony, thanks for prompting me to try these Leslie they are pretty nice) and knit in 2x2 rib for 24 rows before switching to stockinette for 12 rows. I then worked a pretty basic heel flap then knit the foot until it measured 5.75" long. I can't believe my 6 year old has 7" feet! She's only 2" away from catching up with me!

Up next...details on that no hole short row heel. It really does rock!

Those socks look to me like they are having a party of their own, they are so colorful! I love em!!

Your short-row heel is amazing! How you did it with no holes I will be dying to find out. I have never been successful with that style and I can't stand the holes, so I have given up on making them again. I love the look and the fit of the short-row heel, but I just can't get past the holes. They drive me nuts!!! LOL Good for you, a job well done! :)
