August is thoughts are turning to chilly fall days and cold winter nights. They will be here before long. I am hoping to create some warm things from stash for both kids, but I am a complete sucker for pretty new sock yarns.

Socks for Daughter - her little feet are not so little anymore! Daughter and I went out together the other night and browsed A.C. Moore just for fun. She chose this Red Heart sock yarn for herself. It is Heart & Sole, I believe the "berry bliss" colorway. This is fast becoming a favorite sock yarn in our house! I am a bit embarrassed to admit I have purchased probably half the colorways at this point. But with one ball costing so little with a coupon, it is not a bad way to make my children warm woolly socks. They wash and wear awesomely well. I will continue to buy and use this yarn with my coupons till I exhaust all the color choices!

52 stitches on size 2 needles
knit 50 rows 2x2 rib, knit heel flap, turn heel, knit foot to 6.25" total

Easy peasy. Another pair might have found its way onto the needles the minute the ends were sewn into this pair. I'm trying yet another new sock yarn...what? Can't let those craft store coupons go to waste.

I took my blue striped KateSocks on the worlds coldest camping trip this weekend. They were blissfully warm.
