Finished: Baby Socks

Today at work we threw a baby shower for my friend Katy and her 10 week old (v. adorable) baby, Genevieve. Cute babies require cute knitted things, so I dropped everything and made some baby socks.


The Specs:
-Pattern: Better-Than-Booties Baby Socks by Ann Bud, from Interweave Knits, summer 2005.
-Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly DK (about 1/2 of a 50g skein).
-Needles: size 0 dpns
-Start to finish: January 22 - January 24
-For: Baby Genevieve

This is the second time I've knitted these baby socks. They work up super-quick and are a great way to use up leftover ends of skeins. Hooray for stashbusting!* I have to confess, part of the reason I like this pattern so much is that it uses the PGR shortrow heel. Someday, before I die of old age, I promise I will try a different heel....but for now, why mess with a good thing?

*In case you're wondering if I've been infected with the New Years Stashbusting Bug...don't worry, I'm not on a real yarn diet, I'm just interested in maintaining a healthy stash lifestyle.


Those are really cute! I bet they were a big hit.

Oh, SO cute! I made some from Lorna's Shepherd Sock, but I think they're more cute in a solid (the ruffle effect looks nicer on yours).

I'm also happy to see the toe seam on yours -- that's what mine looked like, but I had never done a short-row toe before and I thought I had messed something up.

Healthy stash lifestyle.. nice! How did you manage that purl row on the toes? Did you graft that?

Oh, the socks are so adorable!!

Too cute!

Awesome blog. Peace out until next time TabathaOster
