I checked the website and the next deadline for the US is February 29, 2008. Do they have this project year-round? When do you think is the last date I can safely mail a package to arrive on time (so I’ll know how much longer I have to knit!)?
I decided I wanted to make a pair of socks for this, so I checked the A4A website and the only baby sock pattern I saw was the Super Quick Baby Socks - is that the pattern you used?
I made the first sock yesterday using the Super Quick pattern and followed the pattern suggestions (worsted weight yarn, size 7 needles). The pattern doesn’t provide gauge, finished measurements, or a schematic to go by, so I had no idea what size the sock would be.
Anyway, the finished sock measures 4-1/2" from heel to toe. The website states they want 2-1/2" to 3-1/2" socks, so do you think these socks will be accepted? This would be for a large baby!
Also, can you please give me a link for a smaller pattern? Or please tell me how to down-size this pattern? I know smaller needles will shrink it somewhat, but can I just make a shorter length foot or do I need to cast on fewer stitches for the width too? What about the length of the leg/cuff?
Sorry for SO many questions!
