I searched high and low for a more feminine toddler sock pattern that was made for fingering weight (so many are intended for DK or thicker) and wasn't simply ribbed or stockinette. Oh, and free! These are lacy without being too fussy. They make a great on-the-go project. Plus, they're super quick. (Please disregard the pen scribbles on her leg. Tried not to include them.)

Pattern:  Socks for Little Witches (Ravelry link; sorry, non-ravelers.)
Needles:  Knit Picks Nickel-plated DPNs US 1 (2.50mm)
Yarn:  Knit Picks Felici in Mixed Berries

My first knitted garment was a pair of socks. They're a lot easier than you would think. It's awkward getting started with the dpns, but the thing to remember is that you're still knitting with only 2 needles. Once you're past the first couple of rounds, it's easy peasy lemon squeezy. Child-sized socks are the best for getting started because they go so fast. Using knittinghelp.com helped me figure out the hard stuff like heel-turning, the gusset, and kitchener stitch. Now I've always got a pair of socks on the needles.
