FO - (big) Little Sky sock from CB's New Pathways book one
I used some of my holiday $ to buy New Pathways for Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi, and this is the first "learning sock" in the book. It was supposed to be a bit smaller, but I only had 2 circs in size 6 (this is a worsted weight pattern) so my gauge is a bit too big ('cause I knit loose) so they fit my almost 5 year old.

Since it's a "different" sort of pattern, I thought a "different" sort of sock pose was called for - yes, she's on her belly, with her feet on her forehead

Wow! Love the socks! Adore the little one! Admire the pose...
Okay so maybe I'm a little green at the ability to bend....

Beautifully done, mom!

Thanks all!

I, too, am jealous of her flexibility - you should see her do the splits

These little socks were a very quick knit too - first time I've finished a pair in under 24 hours!
