Vroom vroom - baby Milo

So I wanted to test drive this Milo pattern in fingering. I thought I'd try the 3yrs to aim for a newborn/3mth size. I think I did alright. Although my last baby was 10lb2oz. If this baby is the same, then he won't last long in it! Still, it's cute.

Since I had some leftover Blue Suzanne I decided to make these socks too. Just a simple top down construction using the FLK heel which has become my go to.


I've been wanting to make Skew socks for zonks. Particularly because of the unusual construction. So I used a CDH skein of Blue Suzanne and they worked out great!

Who me? Stripes?

This I've had in mind for a while. I think it turned out pretty well. They were finished before I found out I was preggers so the nausea hadn't set in yet.
