I just finished my fifth pair of children's socks for Pine Ridge Reservation.

This pair is knitted with Opal yarn, 60 stitches, #0 circular needles. I knit them toe up with the 2 socks on 2 circular method. I used a different ribbing on the instep and cuff, it is *k3, p1, k1, p1*. Just a bit different from the k3p1 ribbing I've been using, but it doesn't show well with the dark Opal yarn.

The finished socks have a 7"(17 cm) foot, and are about 3.5" (9.5 cm) from the top of the heel to the cuff.

I have just joined Knitalong Sampler M, a Yahoo group that will reproduce a Dutch knitting sampler. There are 29 lace patterns that will be posted in Dutch and English beginning July 1st.
