This is the first sock of a pair for CIC. They are also the beginnerSAM sock for August/September, using this pattern. I used Lopi as suggested in the pattern and the only modification I made to the pattern was to use 2×2 rib and continue the ribbing down the instep. I knit up this sock last night in one sitting, they go together so quickly. I will try to finish the second sock tonight. When I finish the 2nd sock I will have my 3yo model them for you all to see.
I am also planning on making a couple pair of these socks for my kids to wear around the house this winter, they would prefer go barefoot, but I think I can convince them to wear these cozy socks.
