It’s no secret that there’s a lot of musical theater going on in our house. Both girls have been involved in musicals this summer. Addie was a Bird Girl in Seussical Jr. and Lily is a villager in Once on this Island. I watched back to back showings of Seussical and have been singing “It’s Possible” ever since. My favorite part (other than watching Addie bevel and swish) was when Horton asks JoJo if she dreams when she thinks. JoJo replies, “In bright colors!” I might have yelled in my head, “YES!” at that scene.
While I’m not always drawn to bright colors in my knitting (I am trying to branch out), knitting for kids is a great way to get some bright colors on the needles. My 2 year old nephew needed some wool socks for next winter. Enter this fun skein of Lollipop Yarn in Best Friends that I was able to snag.
I made the Tube Socks for Kids pattern as my nephew is growing fast and I wanted them to be worn as long as possible. He really wasn’t crazy about trying them on during a warm July day, but I know they’ll get worn this winter.
*I have not counted these for Stash Dash yet even though they are finished and gifted. I’m waiting until I finish this particular ball to keep the math easy.
Since I had quite a bit of yarn left, including the green heel/toe ball that is included with the yarn, I decided to cast on immediately for socks for Lily. These are tube socks as well since her feet are growing at a crazy rate. The socks have been moving at a crazy rate as well, but that might be because they’re small and the only project I’ve worked on this week.
