Newborn Hand-knit Socks

Knitters divide themselves into groups. There are the lace knitters, the sweater knitters, the shawl knitters. I’m a sock knitter. I’ve knit over 100 pairs of socks since I started knitting. One of my first projects was a pair of socks for a breast cancer fundraiser.

I’ve taught sock knitting classes. I’ve knit from the top down, the top up, the regular heel, the afterthought heel, the German short row heel, the fish-lips heel. I’ve knit plain “vanilla” socks, socks with lace patterns, ones with fair isle patterns, ribbed socks. Stripped socks, patterned, speckled, solid, tweed, socks with coordinating heels, cuffs and toes. I’ve knit four pairs of socks with the same sock yarn for everyone but myself in my family. (I have yarn for my matching pair…. but I’m a teeny bit sick of that yarn.) I’ve knit socks out of fingering weight, DK, worsted yarn. I’ve even knit anklets, dress socks, knee highs. Socks for men and women.

But I’ve never knit baby socks until now. And they are the cutest, quickest knit. I’m kind of addicted. So please feed my addiction, by purchasing a pair at my Etsy shop, GreenGableStudio
