Mini Socks are fun!

Ok, so I think I have found a new hobby! I decided to knit
a mini sock to make a keychain last night because I just
didn’t feel like jumping on to the next pair of Christmas socks.
Hey, I was still knitting a sock so technically wasn’t shirking
my responsibilities :slight_smile: It was so much fun and finished so
quick and I have already had comments on my cute little
keychain. I wonder if everyone would rather have a keychain
than a pair of socks for Christmas and then I’d have time for
all those patterns waiting for myself! :figureditout:

Libbie, I love those little sock… What I did is put catnip in them and gave them to my cat and my mom’s cat. They love them.

Is there a pattern for mini socks or do you just make small versions of your favorite socks?

Here is the pattern that I used.
and here is another one.

[COLOR=black]They are so fun to make… And don’t feel bad if it takes you more then one day to make one. The first 2 I made. It took me a week to make one:frog:. [/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]:yay:But I learned so much about sock making.[/COLOR]

Stuffing them to make cat toys…what a great idea! I’ll
have to try that since I am enjoy this new little project haha…

Oh and I just made a generic toe up short row toe and heel
sock for mine. Used really fine yarn and 2.5mm needles and
just sort winged it to see what would happen! :slight_smile: It took
me about 2 hours total to get it done but I have been making
alot of socks lately so I was in my “sock groove”! hehe…

I tried making my key chain sock on 2 circs, and got all confused w/ the pattern (that wasn’t written for 2 circs):doh: I think I’ll try again w/ magic loop – I now have a form (from a LYS) where you plug in the DPN pattern to convert to magic loop.

those are so much fun, not to steal your thunder, but I just found this mini mittenpattern I thought would be really cute for onraments. I think I’ll make some of these.

Thanks for the link to the mini mittens! I hadn’t even thought
of trying that. What a perfect idea for christmas
decorations or even for the gift tag!

Those are soooo cute…

I just knit one of the mini mittens, so fun and so cute, here’s a pic to show you how small they are knit with size 2 needles and dk weight yarn. pretty fast knit!

I made the mini mittens last year for ornaments. I felted a couple and they were my absolute favorite gift I gave. Every one was so impressed. I"ll post a pic as soon as I can find it on my computer. ETA: Found it

Thanks for the mitten link, I was thinking about making some for my class this Christmas.
