So, I'm not completely happy with it. I'm hoping some of you sock pros can help. I kind of changed the pattern I was using. It was supposed to be a 1x1 ribbing for the whole sock, but I preferred just a cuff of that and then straight stockinette stitch for the rest. But then I got to the heel and I think the pattern was written to stay with the 1x1 ribs, so that part looks goofy. I also have some holes where I turned the heel that I'm not too happy about. Should I have picked up more stitches than it said and just decreased right away? Ugh, so many questions!

These are Sydney's Valentines. She insisted on the store bought variety, I insisted we add something creative to them. Compromise - Mickey Mouse cards on decorated hearts. There are slits cut in the corners for the card and a set cut in the center for a pixy stick to go through. We were both pleased I think!
These are the cards I made. I'm slowly learning it's all about the layers in card making.
Sydney and I worked together on a Valentine gift for someone special. (Inspired by one Breanna sent me! Thanks again!!)
We made an extra Heart Warmer! Leave a comment before Saturday at noon (CST) to win it!

P.S. My e-mail is broken and it's driving me crazy!

Just in case you wanted to know...
Yarn: Malabrigo worsted weight yarn in Melilla (226)
Needles: DPN size US 10 1/2
Size: Ages 2-5, just adjust the length to fit.
Cast on 21 stitches. Knit in the round until they are 3 1/2 inches long (or measure your own little one for thumb placement.) Cast off three stitches. Continue the row. Next row cast on three stitches and continue knitting for 3 rows or until they are the desired length. Use a stretchy bind off (I use this method.) Done!
