FO: 2 pair of child's socks-modeled
I made these for my youngest grand children recently. The pink yarn and the rust is the same stuff. I dyed the pink with black cherry kool-aid for a boy color.

Pattern is Patons Child's Long Stockings. I followed it pretty closely on the pink but used Cat Bordhi's new Sweet Tomato Heel. On the boy's pair the changes I made were just to make them a bit shorter and to use contrast cuff, heel, and toe.

Thanks Jan. You are right they do like me knitting them things. They always want to wear their "Grandma sweaters". Of course I'm tickled.

I love the long socks for the girl. Isn't it great when they love what you make for them?

Yeah, I have drunk very little of it since I was a kid. Back then nobody thought anything of having it regularly. Sugar--a great source of energy.
