Necessity is the mother of invention. I was not planning to spend the whole day designing and knitting these, however, my dearest sister-in-law Patricia so kindly asked if she could commission me to make some baby socks for her niece who is ‘expecting’ …how can I say no?
So I seized the opportunity and decided to let it be a good reason to design something. Why not a mini verson of Penny Candy Socks’ pattern ? And so voila !
Downsized from Penny Candy Socks, I have designed a baby & toddler version with picot edge and twisted cord tie closure. Cute as can be !!!
Stay tuned, as I will be submitting a pattern just for these, as well as adding the pattern to the existing Penny Candy Socks Pattern , and updating it in Ravelry sales soon ! (If you have already purchased or have been gifted the Penny Candy Socks pattern, you will be sent an automatic update as soon as I submit it 🙂
Those could not be any cuter!!
Awww Thanks Kieran ! They are as cute as bunnies I think 🙂 xx
These would be perfect for these anonymous twins!
You should see me grinning ear to ear, as I figured you say that ! 😉 xx
Love these! The colors are delicious!
Yeah…strawberries & cream swirled with blueberries & cream ! 🙂
You are a master, Jennifer! These are brilliant. thank you so much!
Only too happy to do it, and glad to have had opportunity to really wrap my mind around the whole baby-sizing .. I had to rip back a few times, and will do it differently for your niece, but it’s a good prototype to go by.
These are too damn cute!!! I want to just eat them up!
Hi Jen, thanks so much , and , when I teach you how to knit, you can make these for babies in your life 🙂
Absolutely adorable! And what a great stash-busting project as well :).
Baby clothes in general… they eat up stash ! Thank you Bonnie 🙂
How cute are they? I love the wee picot edge – I love the whole thing!
Thank you Lizzi. Hey, and I learned a bit about baby feet. This one is the prototype, and I will knit up the real intended pair this week. xx
Aw thanks Sharon… can’t wait to see yours 🙂
Adorable is the word that comes to mind. I just love the tiny socks. They are the cutest little things!
I adored the Azure tam (is that the right word?) and the one before it. You look so sassy in the photograph, I just love it!
Emma’s picture at the end of this blog is just so colorful and funny, a dog laying amongst all those balls of yarn. lol. 🙂
Martha , thank you for your sweet praise, as usual ! The little socks didn’t take long to knit… maybe you might start with those? (I did send you the Penny Socks Pattern, did I not? ) You think I look sassy ? I’m so self-conscious in front of the camera, and I try to look rather unserious, but I come off super serious I think… glad to know you think it looks sassy… and yeah, Isn’t Emma cute ‘decorated’ ? 🙂
Hi my lovely!
Those bootees are absolutely darling! X
Aww Kelly Chookie, thank you ! Would you like my wee pattern? 🙂 xx
