Next up was another make for The Child, she has a fabulous pair of snow boots and needs some lovely warm thick socks to wear when the cold, and possibly even snowy, weather strikes. I adapted this 'Gusset Heel Basic Sock' pattern from Wendy Johnson's Book, 'Socks from the Toe Up'. Now, if you consider this is a pattern for a adult's sock in 4ply and I made a child's sock in aran, we're talking some adapting here, but it seemed to work out ok.
They're a bit big, but that was deliberate, I wanted her to be able to wear them over normal socks and also make sure they last the winter and you know what these children are like - they do grow so!
If anyone is interested in the modifications I made to the pattern, or the little heart design I came up with, I was thinking of writing my changes up? Let me know if that's something you'd like.
(Obviously you'd need the original pattern, or another basic sock pattern to adapt, I couldn't give the whole pattern information out, just my changes!)
One last Christmas make to share with you tomorrow....
