Miniature Knitting -- SOCKS!!

video

These are such fun to make, rather addictive.  I wanted to have slippers for the girls to wear when they are in their pajamas and thought, "Why not knit them socks in different weights of yarns?"  So that's what I did, and then adjusted my pattern to fit the different types of feet, from the tippy-toe to the larger flat feet.
Using the furry eyelash yarn, I came up with a fabulous "boot"!  Here a picture of them on a couple of models, one with tippy-toes and one with the smaller flat feet.






All are knitted using 4 size 0 double pointed lace needles or size 00 double pointed lace needles, in the round so there is never a bulky seam.  They all have ribbed (knit purl) cuff, a turned heel and gusset and a shaped toe.  Most of the socks can have the cuff fold over.  The boots are too thick and are meant to stay up.  Slippers are very short cuffed so no turn over is necessary.
They are a nice change from the plastic fashion shoes!   For more information and designs come visit my website http://dollyknickers.org
