For the first time in what feels like a very long time, I have a…
Hannah’s Sweet Sixteen Birthday Socks are finished. Of course, her birthday was two weeks ago today but better late than never, right?
The yarn is Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn in the color Sweetwater and I finished them on the Sixteenth of September. Sounds like a sweet sixteen theme – Sweetwater Socks for a Sweet Sixteen birthday finished on the Sixteenth. You’d think I planned it that way but I didn’t.
No surprise that they have a picot edge, right? And in case you’ve forgotten how to knit a picot edge, Claudia explains it best. Right here.
You all know I love Vesper and this is why. Just look at those perfectly matched stripes. Brilliant.
The color is pretty brilliant, too!
The sixteen year old, though? She’s a klutz. I asked her to put her feet up in the air and she fell over. Gotta love the little goof.

Love the matchy-matchy thing going in theme and socks!
Ooohh, they’re so pretty. I love when the stripes match!
Tell her she needs some ab work or core strengthening or pilates (maybe not… she is beautiful)!
Wow, those are fantastic colors. And they compliment her blushing face, too! nice picot edge.
Wow..those ARE bright socks and perfect for a 16 year old!
Love the theme, love the color!!
Socks from a master sock knitter. Hope she realizes what a special gift she’s received.
Omg, I think you know my mother! (Seriously! I looked at your 100 things about me and decided I was not insane to suggest it. And she has the same favorite pizza place.)
Norma “sent” me over. The pictures clued me in. (Great snowy woodpecker!)
Love the socks – I’m working on some OnLine stripes that are giving me fits about matching, so I’m jealous too.
Great model and cute socks. You were just making her birthday last longer 😉
I’m lovin’ those sweet socks!
Vesper is my newest favorite yarn. It’s just so … perfect.
Awesome – socks and daughter!

I love that color combo.
Thos stripes really do match up amazingly well. They look great.
Such a ham!! But a darling one at that!
Beautiful MATCHING socks!! You amaze me with the matching.
Beautiful socks! It I were wearing them, I’d have to dance.
Very cute socks!!
Love the socks!
Gee, I should dig out my own skein and knit it up, since your pair turned out so beautifully! (Really nice job on the matching. Extra points for that!)
Love the socks!
Great socks…and I’m sure Hannah thinks they are great!!
Gotta love that the little goof’s mom took her photo while falling over, and then put it on the internets for all to see!
what a cutie Hannah is.
I love the colors!
Sweet! Thanks again for Claudia’s link…the best picot tutorial I’ve seen!
No wonder you love that yarn. It’s rare to see hand-dyed sock yarn stripe so beautifully. Those are wonderful and Hannah’s a lucky girl. The last photo is priceless!
