I'm knitting a lovely pair of soft woollen socks for my little nephew who is one month old. The pattern is so easy, on ravelry by Angela Whisnant at sock-a-roos-baby-socks. I've knitted this pattern before. The wool is Australian Shepherd Baby Wool Merino 4ply. It is so soft. I think the socks will be too big, but he's a pretty big baby so it won't be long before they'll fit!
Well, I received a parcel today. I ordered some new needles and yarn a few days ago and am so excited it arrived today! New Knit-Pro dpns for knitting socks in size 2.75 (for fingering) and 3.5 (for socks I'm going to knit in my own homespun). I've fallen in love with the needles, they are so colourful and feel fabulous. I also bought some Shibui sock yarn in Mulberry. Oh, I just love it! I know I said I was going to get some more Colinette Jitterbug, which I will, but I am just loving this Shibui! I'm in knitting heaven, with baby socks to finish, new socks to begin and of course keeping up my triangular shawl. I've also been spinning some pink merino which I'll knit into socks one day. I bought all my treasures from the www.thewoolshack.com
. The service was great and it arrived so quickly!
I'm loving all your comments, so if you are knitting, planting, spinning or cooking, make a comment and let me know!:-)
The socks are looking gorgeous and of course I am going to have to go check out those needles. I just happened to be looking for some myself. :-) Thanks lovely! xoxoxReplyDelete
Great looking baby booties! The muffins look yummy. Love your blog and I love to knit! You must live some place warm if you are growing a garden already.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Yes, it is very warm here in Eastern Australia at the moment, but we are having a lot of thunder storms!Delete
i love my harmony dpns, they make me smile as I knit. My wheel just gathers dust as I never seem to get time for that. I have some socks on the go and am trying to finish off a cross stitch project aswell. I love the little red socks, too cute1ReplyDelete
Yes, I just love the coloured needles! Good luck with all your projects!ReplyDelete

I have never made baby socks! I have no idea why since it seems the most sublime and lovely little project.ReplyDelete
