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!

Look Ma, No Holes!

So I've not always been so in love with short row heels but this one, this one makes me weak in the knees.
