socks for kids

This will be Baylee W's sock when I'm finished. Her dad, Alan, is my good friend from the orchestra pit. I've never knitted socks for kids before, but Alan requested socks for Baylee, who is 4, and Ben who is 8. I'm following the chart for sizing in Charlene Schurch's "Sensational Knitted Socks" book, and my fingers are crossed that the socks will fit. The yarn is Magic Stripes from Lion Brand.

Love the colors in that sock!
Is the fiber content mostly wool? Mostly synthetic? How do you like working with it?

The yarn is probably 75 wool 25 nylon, but I'm guessing since I lost the label already. It's just a hair heavier than typical sock yarn, but that just means it knits up faster, right? I like it.

Hmm, like it-- What a cute baby sweater that would be!
May have to cruise past there on my next ACMo visit :D
Hope to see you Thursday!
