Baby Socks


These are my new favorite baby gift. The pattern is based on the Jelly Bean socks from Spud & Chloe, and they are dead easy to knit. I can usually knock out one sock in about two hours, if I could ever manage to sit and knit for two hours straight, that is.

I've knit a total of seven pairs, and these two are my favorites. I had fun playing with the different colors and making them not quite match. These will be shipped off this week to a blog-world friend who just had twins. (And who is too busy to read this blog and have the surprise ruined, I hope.)

Now I have to finish up some other projects I have on the needle, including some yoga socks and some cool patterned socks. Then I might even get brave and cast on a sweater for myself. I have the yarn, pattern and needles waiting for me.

Oh, my gosh...those are beautiful. I like how you can tell they'll stay on itty bitty baby feet!

So talented. Have I mentioned yet how bright and sunny it is around here these days? Love the orange.
