sock it to me

Last week was my mum's birthday. DD, GS#1 and I went to visit her for a few days. While we were there, using the notes from the tutorial I gave last October and using dpns for the first time, DD knitted this (without much help from me). It is knitted in 8ply/DK wool that she hand-dyed and would fit a child about six months old.
I'm very proud of you, darling daughter.

  6. How fantastic knitting her first socks. I find knitting socks much easier on dpns than circs for some reason, still havent mastered that.
