Holly's Highland Infant Knee Sock... so far















This is what I came up with. I will make little tassels to hang down over the sides. I think it's going to be super cute. I wish I could write the pattern but I'm not good at things like that. I know what to do, I just don't know how to explain it. Or, here's the thing, maybe I just don't have the patience it takes to explain it. That's probably more like it.

The deal with the kilt thing is this... my son-in-law's sister is getting married next month and the whole wedding theme is a Scottish thing. The groomsmen will be in kilts and there will be bagpipes (the groom plays the bagpipes) etc. I am trying to picture my 6'4", former college football player, son-in-law in a kilt. I'm not seeing it. But I guess I will see it. Kelly thought it would be fun to dress Colin the same. Hence the socks. It's going to be a surprise for the family so I hope they don't read my blog! I don't think they even know I have one. If anyone reading this has any blackwatch plaid fabric laying around anywhere, I might be able to use a little tiny piece of it. I'm going to play around with a little fabric tab under the tassel on the sock. I'm undecided about that but I'd like to see what it looked like.

I'm looking at my schedule and I don't have one appointment this weekend. No appointments. Nothing I have to do. Nowhere I have to go. I can't believe that I might be able to get some housework accomplished. And laundry done. And gardening. This can't be true. Oh well, it's early yet. Something will come up to put a wrench in it.

OMG Holly.....How cute! You are amazingly creative. You really should be writing down every step as you go and market your patterns. You're gifted!

Those are going to be so cute! Is Colin going to be wearing a baby-sized kilt to go with them?
