Last night, as I tried to sleep and couldn't, I decided to try out my new 'preemie' loom. I have preemie in quotes because this little sock thing is NOT preemie!! Let us compare:
Then, I got my Preemie looms from CinDWoodsCrafts and made a 'preemie' sock, followed the pattern almost exactly - I say almost because the pattern called for 20 rows from the heel to the toe and I stopped at 15!
A Preemie Sock/Bootie, loom knitted!
Some of you may recognize this measuring tool... it is a knitting needle guide that I won,
ironically, as the fastest crocheter at my local Michael's store! :)
The inch measurements are harder to see on this white rule (the old brown ruler grew legs and walked away from my desk!) but they go up to five inches. Now, from the toe to the bend in the heel, this 'preemie' sock is 4 inches and probably a bit more when actually on a foot as this stuff stretches! So, had I gone the whole pattern, my little 5" measure would not have been enough and if this is a preemie sock, I am a little green Martian... and, while I trace my roots back to the green, green grass of Ireland, I am neither green nor small!
