Baby socks in Baby Cashmerino

They’re the Heel and Toe socks aged 3-6 months in 50 Baby Bootees to Knit knitted in Debbie Bliss’s Baby Cashmerino on 3mm Addi Turbo 40mm circulars. These were purchased from Get Knitted & I was really impressed with the speedy service. I ordered them mid afternoon on Wednesday & they hit the doormat on Thursday morning! However I didn’t start them until Saturday morning as I was finishing the Curly Whirley Scarf in the previous post. The colours aren’t fantastic in the above photo but the main yarn used is 606 & the contrast is 607 which I ‘borrowed’ from the Entrelac Shawl. Each sock used 8g of the main colour & 2g of contrast so is a good way of using up left over bits. I liked the pattern but next time I do them I’ll also knit the cuff in the contrast yarn as I think it’ll look better.

This pattern is also 3-6 months from 50 Baby Bootees to Knit & the main colour is Debbie Bliss’s Baby Cashmerino in 606. The contrast edge in 101 was also ‘borrowed’ from a future project but I think it’ll be able to spare 104 cast on stitches.

They’re now wrapped & waiting for the post office to open after the holidays before going off to join the other gifts that I’ve sent.

Finally a pic of baby wearing the stripey bootees knitted in Regia 6 ply sent to me by my SP5.

These bootees are aged 0-3 months but fit her as socks so as well as both living with Airedales we both wear Stripey Socks!
