these were knit using the heel and toe socks pattern from zoe mellor’s book of 50 baby bootees to knit.which is practically the same as the stripy socks pattern i used for these, down to the same typos, except these are a bit smaller. i didn’t do the multicoloured bit of the pattern for these socks either as i was using up bits of patterned yarn again. this yarn is opal cream 1022 sock yarn which was leftover from the first pair of socks i made last year. i think it’s interesting to see how the yarn knits up in the two scales. these baby socks are 32 stitches around, i think mine were 64 stitches.
these socks are also pretty damn close to being identical twin socks:
i knit these socks soon after i bought the book in january 2005.
