Finished the set

I wanted to make a hat/sock set for some friends of ours who are expecting a little boy. Although I posted the hat the other day (a simple pattern I just made up), I had trouble finding a sock pattern for infants that used sockweight yarn and #2 needles. Well... tada! Found one (on my own shelves, nonetheless!) Simple little pattern from the book "Knit a Dozen Baby Socks" by Edie Eckman. These are the "Basic" sock. She actually calls for #3 needles, but I used 2s and they still look a little large. That's fine. Baby's grow, right?!

Grace and Peace,

Do babies grow! Heck, you turn around and their 13, or 16, or have three kids of their own!

Can't trust 'em, not at all. They'll grow on you every time!

The set is very cute. A nice thing about knitting for youngones, if it doesn't fit at first, they will eventually grow into them.

That is a great set. I am sure the baby will appreciate it and will look so cute. Well done.
