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!
