New Design - Angelia's "Cat's Paw" Socks
1 Attachment(s)
I'm not really a designer, you know, but I try.

Angelia wanted to claim the socks I made for my Mom, so I have started making some just for her.

I did some research, reading her KH blog as well as her other blog, and chose pink as the color for her personalized socks.

After some consideration, I have decided to embark into true "design world" and make my first sock pattern, using the Angelia-appropriate "Cat's Paw Lace" design on the leg. Neat-O!

So far, I'm still doing the ribbing, because I'm using size 1 needles. This is going to be a LONG project. But, the vintage baby wool wouldn't work right with size 2 needles. So, that's that.

Oh, Sandy, how exciting! Designing socks is FUN, FUN, FUN!!! You are so sweet to do this. You are going to LOVE them on size 1's, too. That's my fave socknitting needle size, too ;)
I can't wait to see them...I love the pink :thumbsup:

Thanks for the encouragement! I've never designed socks before, so this will be a good experience for me.

I just finished the first set of "cat's paws".

I decided to switch to size 2 needles at the lace portion to make it more lacy.
