Yesterday I went to see my friend Jackie, another knitting nut, who had the latest gorgeous addition to the family last Monday and boy is he cute. He is the most quietest adorable thing and just as good as gold. Which is great as it gave us a chance to catch up on some knitter natter. And he was wearing the newborn socks I made him which looked so cute on him, though a little baggy, but he didn't seem to mind. As long as they kept his feet warm, he was happy. Bless.
Have to admit these were the first baby socks on DPNs I'd made and boy were they a little tricky. The pattern I had did my head in - wrapping stitches on such a small sock nearly gave me brain damage - so after frogging it for the 3rd time back to the ribbing I hunted around the internet for a nice basic short row pattern and from then on it was plain sailing. Remind me never to wrap stitches on such a miniscule sock again!
