Sock swap

I participated in a sock swap earlier this year. I made socks for a young mother in Norway and a lovely woman in England made a pair for me. We were members of the Vintage Sock Swap, from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks.

Gift Socks

These are the pair that Michelle made for me. They are known as Little Child's Sock. This is a pattern I have not tried. They fit just right.

I had posted the Child's First Sock that I made for myself. These are the one's I made for Johanna in Norway:

Child's First Sock - Detail

The color reminded me of the lakes, rivers and fjords of Northern Norway. Blues and greens are shades that she liked, and it seemed fitting. The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill in the colorway Green Mountain Madness.

See you tomorrow!
