It's Another One...Sort Of Like The Other One!!

O.K. I am done with the mini socks! One is going to be a Christmas Ornament...the other one I'm going to stuff with cat nip and drive Gracie Kitty even crazier (if that is possible)! I follow Marguerites' blog, Stitches of Violet http://stitchesofviolet.blogspot.com/. Marguerite participates in a project called CIC (Children in Common) http://www.childrenincommon.org/ .
In a nutshell, this is a project where knitters can donate socks, etc. to be sent to Russian orphanages. Take a look at Marguerite's website....she has made SO many beautiful children's socks! I think this is a great project to contribute to and I am waiting on instructions for a basic children's sock pattern so I can start working on my contribution. The mini socks knit up so fast and fun to make I think the children's socks will be as enjoyable to knit and best of all will be donated for such a wonderful cause!!

Here's a pattern designed especially for the children in common project. I've knit them and its not too difficult. Just thought I'd pass this website along . . .

Those are the cutest minisocks I've ever seen. I might just try some.

I have a friend who is a librarian and they have staff tree decorating contests at each library. Her staff chose a knitting tree and made mini sweaters hanging on mini hangers last year.

I like Marguerite's pattern for the basketweave toddler sock on the sidebar of her blog. I have made several for CIC.

I really like your mini socks! I've made several socks for CIC in the past. They go really fast and it's a great way to practice different heels, toes, and cuffs.

That is the cutest pair of mini-socks I have ever seen! Yay for a PAIR! Yay!

I've seen CIC too - and it might be a good use for some of my wool Palette that is left over. When I first found the pattern I didn't have ANY wool yarn in my stash, wow!

Your mini socks look so good - I know you can master adult socks no problem!
