Abbey is my darling 5 year old. She is also my favorite person to knit for because no-one get's as excited about a new knitted item than Abbey. She is also very demanding about receiving knitted items.
Her favorite knitted item seems to be socks. Every time she sees me knitting on a sock she asks if it's for her. If I reply no. She says it's not fair and stomps away.
The truth is I do love knitting socks for her. Well, I love knitting socks in general but the best thing about Abbey's socks is how quickly I can knit a pair up. I always use leftover sock yarn I had from other projects. On this particular pair I decided to try out an afterthought heel for the first time and so I did the toe and heel in a different color. I think they turned out very cute. The colors work well together.
After a new pair of socks is placed on her feet. She wants to wear them for days without taking them off..
