I started the year with 4 babies due. The first baby has been born and it was a little boy. These baby socks were for him. I absolutely love this pattern, and now have a friend of mine obsessed with these socks too. They are quick, and I think, a great way to learn sock knitting. The pattern is called Little Speckled Toes #153 by Lynda Gemmell. You can find this pattern on Ravelry and also in the book Baby Knits Head & Toes! The yarn that I used is from Myra Garcia and Fancy Image Yarn. It’s her Machine Washable Merino Wool DK. On a parting note, I’ve gotten feed back that these socks do stay on, so that’s good…now to get a photo of the socks on a real baby, to see the fit.
I am editing this post today. Since my last post, the baby number has grown from 4 to 9. Yep, nine babies to be born this year, with my first grandchild to be #9 and born this year in December. Needless to say, I’m still knitting these baby socks. Here is an updated collage.
