New member and Garter Rib Socks

Hi everyone! I'm a new member to the KAL, thanks so much for having me. I've just completed my first pair of socks from the book. I knitted the Garter Rib pattern in toddler size. They were done with Wool of the Andes, US#5 Addi circulars, 1s2c method. These will go to Children in Common for charity. I've really enjoyed the book so far. I like knitting up the patterns in worsted weight, toddler size first -- gives me a great idea of how they will look. It's fast and some child will have warm toes!

Did you use the class sock dimensions?

I've got loads of left overs that could be turned into kids socks. I've made a few pairs of baby socks using the Zoe Mellor pattern in '50 pairs of Baby Bootees to Knit' but nothing inbetween.

blueadt - I did not use the class sock on this one. I used a cast on of 32 stitches from the chart in the book.
