A real live knitted baby sock. Oh yeah.

As the girls in my needlework group can attest, I have had a project on my knitting needles for two (yes) two years…. I have been determined to make a sock, preferably two. I first started with an adult sock, self striping yarn, but couldn’t tell my knits from my purls. I pulled it out many times, started over, dropped it for a while then tried again. Grandson was born and I was desperate to make him some baby socks.

Finally, just this week, I have made one. It isn’t perfect so don’t look too close! BUT I have started the next one and expect to finish it much, much, much sooner than this one! My sock-savy friends said I had an icky pattern, so that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!

I also found some cute-as-a-button Croc-like shoes for the little man-cub! I think I would have bought them even if I didn’t have a little one to buy for! They are tooooo cute!
I started with this self-striping Clown yarn. It baffles me how it knows how to stripe. It is magic, I am sure.

Here’s a closeup of my stitches.
All I needed now was the cutest baby toes on the planet.

Found ’em.

Here’s the sock in the knee-sock form. Ninja Man says boys don’t wear knee socks and I say patooie. Grandson AshMan can roll however he wants in this, the cool sock from his Mama Bo. Even more so when I finish sock #2!

Here’s the cute little shoes… they are just right!
Where’s the other sock? On my needles, dear one…. I’m hurrying!
