I promised you a pattern and here it is. I wanted to knit these baby socks from pink yarn, but I didn’t have any. So off-white it is.

It’s already late, so I’m not gonna make a big talk here. Socks are for 1 to 3 months old baby and should be knee-length. Hopefully πŸ™‚ (and yes – I need better pictures)

    I wish I could knit those for my grandson but he has out grown that size. He turned 1 year old in Feb.

      I’m planning to add other sizes too up to 2 years, also new pictures – it was so late yesterday. I already counted the stitches and I just need to add those here – maybe on a weekend (I hope) πŸ™‚
