>Christmas gift knitting

>For ages now this blog has focused too much on the kittens & my DD’s awful behaviour. Partly because the kittens are new to our lives & very cute and that her behavour has been so awful but also because I haven’t been able to show any knitting as it was all to be gifted to other people.

So finally I can show what I’ve been working on. Firstly a pair of bedsocks for my 5 year old nephew:

blue bedsocks
Stockinette-stitch Triangle bedsocks

Pattern: Stockinette-stitch Triangles from More Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: James C. Brett Pure Merino in PM5
Needles: 2 x 3.5mm 60 cm circulars
Method: Knitted cuff down two at a time.

Then a pair his eldest sister my 10 year old niece:

pink bedsocks
Open Cable with Twisted Rib bedsocks

Pattern: Open Cable with Twisted Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: James C. Brett Pure Merino in PM2
Needles: 2 x 3.5mm 60 cm circulars
Method: Knitted cuff down two at a time.

Then a pair for the middle child my 7 year old niece:

lilac bedsocks
Bluebell Rib bedsocks

Pattern: Bluebell Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: James C. Brett Pure Merino in PM5
Needles: 2 x 3.5mm 60 cm circulars
Method: Knitted cuff down two at a time.

Of the three patterns the Open Cable with Twisted Rib was my favorite. I don’t have any modeled photos but this one on my hand shows how the pattern might look on a foot:

This yarn is so soft & squidgy that it’s perfect for a pair of snuggly bedsocks. I’ve even started a pair for myself!
