Baby Socks

Knit up very quickly. This yarn is hard to photograph and get the colors right. It's the same yarn I used for my socks and it's wild and fun. If you look, you can see that the two pairs of socks are different colors. I was knitting along and came to a knot - the yarn before the knot was the bright color and the yarn after the knot was significantly darker (much more pronounced in person than in this lousy photo). Fortunately these were small socks and I had plenty of yarn so I made one pair dark for one baby and one pair bright for another.

Did you tell us where the pattern is? I am guessing saartje so I will go look there. I have a wee bit of blue that matches the last baby afghan and perhaps it needs a hat or two and maybe a pair of socks. I will as much as the yarn I have will make. The object is to use up yarn and not to buy more. I want to get all the yarn gone before buying more - and there is so much I am tempted to trash some of it.

Actually, it's called magic 28. You cast on 28 stitches and knit 28 rows, turn the heel and then work 28 more rows. I didn't do all that. I cast on 28 stitches and then worked till I felt like it, turned the heel and finished. Since I started with the same number of stitches, and used the pattern to turn the heel, I called it a magic 28 sock. Here's the pattern:

And I got to put one pair on the baby last night . . . . he's so cute!
