Ok, so I think I have found a new hobby! I decided to knit
a mini sock to make a keychain last night because I just
didn't feel like jumping on to the next pair of Christmas socks.
Hey, I was still knitting a sock so technically wasn't shirking
my responsibilities :) It was so much fun and finished so
quick and I have already had comments on my cute little
keychain. I wonder if everyone would rather have a keychain
than a pair of socks for Christmas and then I'd have time for
all those patterns waiting for myself! :figureditout:
Hehe....

Libbie,, I love those little sock.. What I did is put catnip in them and gave them to my cat and my mom's cat. They love them.

Is there a pattern for mini socks or do you just make small versions of your favorite socks?

Here is the pattern (http://yarnmiracle.gweezlebur.com/patterns/WeeTinySock.html) that I used.
and here is another one (http://www.geocities.com/jbtocker/patterns/minisock.html).

They are so fun to make.. And don't feel bad if it takes you more then one day to make one. The first 2 I made. It took me a week to make one:frog:.

:yay:But I learned so much about sock making.

Stuffing them to make cat toys...what a great idea! I'll
have to try that since I am enjoy this new little project haha..

Oh and I just made a generic toe up short row toe and heel
sock for mine. Used really fine yarn and 2.5mm needles and
just sort winged it to see what would happen! :) It took
me about 2 hours total to get it done but I have been making
alot of socks lately so I was in my "sock groove"! hehe...

I tried making my key chain sock on 2 circs, and got all confused w/ the pattern (that wasn't written for 2 circs):doh: I think I'll try again w/ magic loop -- I now have a form (from a LYS) where you plug in the DPN pattern to convert to magic loop.

Thanks for the link to the mini mittens! I hadn't even thought
of trying that. What a perfect idea for christmas
decorations or even for the gift tag!
