My daughter asked if I could make shark socks for her friend’s baby daughter. Not knitted, mind you, but crocheted. Not really my thing but… I found a pattern on Etsy, bought some cheap acrylic yarn and had a really hard time making a pair of quite ugly and totally useless shark socks. Lots of seaming involved too, which doesn’t really make sense, does it?
A few weeks later I got hold of some lovely grey and white baby alpaca yarn and decided to try and knit a pair of shark socks for the little girl, something soft and wearable. Et voilá! Knitted shark socks for a baby happened, everyone was much happier and they actually fit!
