Needed a quick break from a cardigan I’m getting fatigued on, and thought some quick itty bitty baby socks would be just the thing. These are so much fun!

I’ve made these socks twice before and had to make them smaller around because I’m such a loose knitter. This time I couldn’t even find my size zero needles, but since the Hugs and Kisses version of these socks have cables, I only reduced to 39 stitches around (from the original 45).

Still, they are huge… I’m due in January and imagine baby won’t be able to wear them until at least the following winter.
