To match that Purl Bee garter flap had I knit the other day. I decided to use my favorite baby sock pattern–Joelle Hoverson’s baby socks from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I’ve used it in the past to great results.
This time around, I wanted the socks to not just match the hat, but I wanted them to feel playful and fit for a new baby. We all know how much I love the pop of color in a toe. Well, why not for baby socks, too?
These were knit up using the Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in the thyme colorway I used for the hat. It also features the golden ochre in Malabrigo Merino Worsted for the toe detail, just like the pom did in the hat.
I love little projects. Not only did I finished these in about an hour last night whilst watching television, I get to dig into my stash and use up small bits of yarn.
