I decided that my LL Cranberry leftover from the first Hedera that I made, needed to be put to good use, so I decided to knit up some baby socks…
Found the pattern on the Interweaves site under the Free Patterns/Gifts called Better-Than-Booties Baby Socks
I made the Chevron Lace socks and when I finished the first of the pair, I realised I done them on my 2.5 DPNs and not the 2.0 ones that I bought specifically. Now I’m a loather of having to start something again, especially after I’ve finished and it looks damned fine…! 🙂 So I decided to carry on and make the second of the pair. Finished that last night and they look so cute!! They’re bigger than the specified measurements, (to be expected, considering I knit them on the wrong needles!) but they look v.cool.
I’m hoping that the mother I’m going to send them to, with the booties I made in pink, will put them to one side and use them once the little one has slightly bigger feet!! 🙂 I’ll make another pair of the socks, using one of the other patterns, but this time, I’ll knit them on the right sized needles!!
Seriously, they’re adorable!!

All together now…:
Ohh.. and it’s my first attempt at short row heels.. impressive.. I was awed at how they turn out..
I need to knit them tighter, but as long as I know that, it seems to work out ok. they look so much neater as well than the normal Opal/Regia heels that I’ve done so far.
Back to the Rib & Eyelet tank from DB… *sigh*
