Baby Socks

I finished these baby socks for a friend (had started them here in september). The baby shower was on Saturday, and baby is due mid-January. I used a leftover yarn that I can't remember the name of, but I'm pretty sure it's cotton. These will be perfect for spring/summer. It's probably hard to tell, but the foot is about 4.5" long.

If you have a Ravelry account, you can see my project page here. Otherwise, the details are that I used the On Your Toes sock pattern by Ann Budd, from the Summer 2007 IK magazine. Unknown yarn, size 1 bamboo needles, 40st count for foot and calf. Very fast socks, and I'm happy with the pattern, except for the sewn bind off at the top. Any other sock-knitters have a better method?

They are beautiful! I love the colors - you need to make a 'grownup' version for yourself!

Very nice Linda! Ellie is bugging me to knit her some socks so I have the supplies and hope to work on them on our way to Georgia next week for the holidays. My first pair on double pointed as I've only made one pair before this and they were on two circulars!
