WHN Child's Socks


With these small (age 5 to 7) socks done, I thought I'd work on a larger size (hopefully 8 to 10 years) as well. A few have asked for more information about the pattern, so I'll try to write something up in the next few days.

And if you look carefully, you'll see my new Stork scissors in the photo next to my little socks. These are a much appreciated birthday gift from Jane. There's a fascinating history behind the design of these scissors. In the 1800s midwives used them as umbilical clamps for newborns, and they gradually morphed into needlework scissors through the years. Neat, huh?
