Little Squirrel

April 30, 2015

MB-littlesquirrel-06sqThere is something so delightful about baby feet. They are so small, impossibly pudgy and they have adorable little teeny tiny toes. Okay, sorry, I almost devolved into baby talk for a second there!

Max & Bodhi’s Wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without some Little Squirrel socks.


When Emily and I were plotting our first book, 9 Months of Knitting, we knew we wanted socks sized for the whole family, because the thought of a wee baby and a big man wearing THE SAME SOCKS was positively irresistible to us.  Thus the Lumberjack socks were created. It’s been a few years (and what seems like a lot of kids) but we still love this concept!  Grandpa and Grandson in matching socks?  Nana and toddler in matching socks?  Three siblings in matching socks?  Yes to all of it!  And so we created these socks for little squirrels and big squirrels alike.



Hazel Knits Cadence in ‘lichen’ and ‘white winged dove’

This time we wanted the toastiest toes we could get so we went with a textured, worsted weight sock. Little Squirrel socks are nice and thick, quick to knit, and perfect to keep both tiny and big toes warm around the house. The yarn we used is Hazel Knits Cadence and I am a big fan. It is super soft and lovely, and the color just glows, there is no other way to describe it! Wendee and co. have a great range of colors, all with depth and nuance. Each month they have a ‘color of the month‘ which I love!  You can check out April’s colorway now and there is a new colorway coming tomorrow!


These socks are lovely, simple and cozy – perfect for big feet too!

If you are feeling daunted by socks, don’t be. We have a step by step tutorial that covers all the techniques!
