Knittin' & Stitchin'

*Thirties Baby quilt *
Cream prints (4.5″ sq) & thirties print offcuts (2 x 4.5″)
Unbordered – 28″ sq

I had the strips made up for this a few months ago and got distracted with other things. The thirties prints came as a job lot of offcuts from a quilt show I went to last year. I think the bag was £2 from memory and the creams are a variety of leftovers from my wedding quilt.

The lacey pattern is fun to knit but I’m not 100% happy with the overall shape of these socks, especially the gusset and heel shaping. They do look quite short from the picture but it’s quite a stretchy knit and I am getting someone with smaller feet to try them this week before I finish sewing up the toes! (Just in case).
