Eleanor's Socks

This is my first attempt knitting socks for Eleanor, she grows so quickly, it is usually a fail for me, because I cannot keep up.

However, I am attempting socks. I tried a very plain version of socks to see how well these fit her and will base more complicated future socks off how I may need to alter these ones to fit her. So we shall see how it goes.

I used some of the yarn that Vera dyed as I figured Vera would find it cool that her and Eleanor socks are similar colors.

Very basic toe-up socks.

Afterthought heels.


Yarn: Knit Picks Bare Stroll Fingering Sock Blank
Content: 75% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon
Color: Dyed by Vera with Yellow and Orange Wilton's Icing Dye
Care: Machine Wash and Dry

Needles: US 1
Size: US 9 Children

These socks are cute and little and took barely any time. I am finding that I love to knit little people socks to try things out on because of the ease to make them. Hope they fit her well.


  1. Sweet and cheerful! I need to knit more little people socks. They are quick and fun, and I have one friend whose infant son will only tolerate the two pairs of hand knit socks I've gifted him... but his feet are growing!!

  2. You're just flying through the socks! I guess it helps that the feet are small, but still!
