A friend who had a baby in 2014 asked me to knit some warm socks for him.
I had some leftover navy DROPS Merino Extra Fine at home and used it for this pattern.
The fun about this pattern is that it knits up very quickly, and it makes them extra cosy and ‘snuggly’ as Luke would say.
The cables that run down the cuff of the sock look really sweet.
And my friend sent me a picture of her gorgeous little man wearing them, doesn’t he look happy?
Pattern: Socks by DROPS Design.
Yarn: DROPS Merino Extra Fine in dark blue.
Needle size: 3mm
Knitting time: 24th October 2014.
I can’t believe it’s been over two months since I last posted. We’ve been busy here with holidays coming to an end, my job being very busy and other things (watch this space).
I thought it might be a good idea to get back to posting my huge number of FO’s from the last few years (yes embarrassingly I have so many that I haven’t written about).
These booties were made for a friend from school who had a baby boy in 2012, I made him a pixie hat too and blogged about it here.
He was the lucky recipient of the booties I designed myself.
I still love this pattern, even though I mainly knit Saartjes Bootees at the moment for gifting. These little guys are brilliant because I can use up lots of leftover sock yarn for them.
They are great also because they are one of the few baby booties that actually stay on those cute little feet.
Here’s a quick shot of the bootie and pixie hat together.
And would you look at those sweet feet in the booties…
