Wednesdays Are For Knitting: Jackie’s Baby Socks

I finished the cutest little pair of baby socks for Jackie a week or so ago.

I followed the Cozy Little Toes pattern and made them a wee bit big so that they will see him through until spring.

The yarn is a bit of leftover Woolen Rabbit Opal in the color Daddy Steelbucks. It’s the perfect grey for all of his little outfits because grey is the new blue when it comes to baby boys.

I have to admit, they took longer than they should have given how small they are. I pictured myself cranking out 3 or 4 pair of these for him in the last few weeks. Ummmm. No. But still, one pair is better than no pair.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  1. Jackie isn’t walking on those cute socks, so they won’t get too dirty (while you knit three or four more pairs). I’m always amazed at how fast I knit in my mind, picturing many inches added to cowls and lots of teeth on hitchhikers. And then there’s the reality of how slowly I knit in real life …

  2. Such sweet socks and little feet. I am not a sock knitter but I hope to make a sweater for,our tiny person at some point. Maybe for next winter πŸ™‚

  3. Oh, such sweet baby socks!
    I love making them, but I don’t have enough baby’s in my life to knit them for. Maybe I could stock up for future grand children though… πŸ˜‰

  4. The socks are just too precious. I think they take time because they are small and have a lot of fiddly motions.

  5. Those are so cute! I’m thinking I want to try some socks/booties for Maggie Sue but probably in April. She has tiny little feet right now so I have some time.

  6. Those are so cute, Carole! But my experience is that small things are not always quicker than large things. You still have to go through all the steps to knit a sock. The way he is growing, this pair should maybe last him until it gets warm? I hope so. Knitting for babies is so much fun, but they grow out of things so quickly. I can’t wait to see how long it takes to knit that BSJ. Probably not that long
