This mom is having a little boy and the baby room theme is “Tatty Teddy”, I was lucky to find a “Tatty Teddy” receiving blanket at the local shop and I again just crocheted a border on to it, if you want to see the other ones I did click the link.
The tiny teeny little socks pattern I found was for free from Jeanne at Jimmy Beans Wool, click the link if you want to download the pattern.
Quick tips for knitting tiny teeny little socks-
• Knit them on short wooden or bamboo double pointed knitting needles the wood/bamboo holds the stitches better and they don’t slip off so easy. I knitted mine with a set of Blue Sky Alpacas, nr 2 wooden double pointed needles that I purchased on one of my trips to New York at Purl Soho.
• To prevent that laddered look when you switch to the next needle when knitting in the round on three needles, pull the yarn tight after knitting the second stitch before knitting the third stitch.
Now I need to finish hand quilting the other baby blanket that I started last week, that boy is coming this week!
Very cute little socks – which yarn did you use? I like the colourway!
It is yarn called Retro made by Elle South Africa, I have being told they don’t make it anymore.
Thanks – shame though!
They are gorgeous! Well done!
There’s nothing sweeter than tiny baby socks! They’re just lovely.
You are very talented – so well done!
You to kind!

I love the fact that you make handmade gifts, clever and skilled enough to accomodate to the tight time frame! Nice job on the coordination once again!
Thanks Nina, you to kind.
So cute socks! And embellishing the blanket’s a really good idea.
Thank you for your kind words.

I’ve I’ve always wanted to knit socks but never managed to get a pair, only odd ones one would fit and one would fall off. Turning the heel is confusing! You are super talented!
Thanks for your kind words and for visiting my buzy day blog.
