During a conversation with my seven year old granddaughter, she mentioned that she would really like a new pair of knit socks. Of course, I said I would make her a pair! There's nothing better than having one of your grandkids ask you to make something especially for them. These socks work up quickly with worsted weight yarn and size 5 needles. It's probably a good thing they are a quick knit, because once Miss Four gets her new socks, I expect that I'll be getting a few more requests for new socks from the other girls.
