I have loved making things that involve using my hands ever since I was a very small child. Things have evolved since then. Sewing, quilting, smocking, embroidery, spinning and of course knitting and machine knitting. I have been designing my own knitting patterns for many years now, but more seriously during the last 5 years. Since 2008, my husband and I have been living aboard our sailings vessel "ONEDAY". We left Bayfield ON in August 2008 and up to this time, we have spent our time cruising the Eastern Seaboard and the Bahamas. For a couple of months each year, we return to our home in Ontario where I love to teach knitting classes which I create around my own designs. I have paterns for sale on Craftsy, Knit Picks, Etsy and on Ravelry also. You can find me under my name, Linda Sellick or "ONEDAYDESIGNS".

These infant to age 8 yrs "Hiking" socks will become a year 'round favourite for both indoor and outdoor use.
The quick and easy to knit design starts with a provisional cast on and continues into a sideways knit garter stitch cuff. The cuff is completed by grafting the two ends together. Stitches are picked up from the cuff and the sock then becomes a conventional top down design.
Do not be put off by the word "hiking" - These cozy socks work well as warm and comforting boot socks or slipper socks, making them also perfect for indoor wear.
The design is written for 4 different sizes, ranging from 6 month to 8 years.
This design also comes in a separate adult pattern - "Happy Hiker" Socks with sizes ranging from small to ex. large.
4.5 sts & 7 rows = 2.5cm In Stocking Stitch and after blocking.
