I have finally conquered the fear of knitting socks on smaller needles. I got to experience what it's like to knit socks toe up for the first time, and I love it. More easily customizable. I did increases for the toes, and then a short row heel for both.

I named these cotton candy because of the colors that they have. The pastel colors remind me of when you walk by a cotton candy stand with all the different colors waiting for you.

I named these Blueberry Lace since the color reminds me of blueberry candies I used to get when I was little. The lace pattern is called Mini Horseshoe Lace from The Knitters Bible.

They are absolutely lovely! The colours are great and I love the little bit of ribbing - sort of more like a ruffle... very nice, indeed!
