Even dolls need a pair of luxury socks. This first attempt turned out to be green reclaimed cashmere socks.
These were knit on size 0 US needles, with a laceweight yarn once again provided by Penelope's Fine Yarns. It's a nice shade of green, more blue undertones than yellow. They are simple socks with ribbing at the top, but they aren't tube socks. Oh no, these have a tiny little heel!
The socks are knit from the toe up, so I can gauge how long I want to make each one before I will run out of yarn. I have a lot of little skeins that are perfect for doll items, so I envision a lot more socks in the near future. The pattern being easy to memorize makes this a great project for tv watching, or to have in my purse if I suspect I'm going to be waiting around for anything for any reason.
This pair of socks is up on eBay. Hopefully this will be another item I can make to help offset the cost of living in general, and doll collecting specifically. :D
Now I need to get to work and try to ignore the indignant glances I keep getting from Ellowyne and Sydney. They got a taste of cashmere socks, and now they want their own. They've already pointed out that it would be impractical for me to knit myself a pair, and that they have been modelling for free, so, you know, some kind of compensation is in order. Soon. :D
