Knitting Notes

Pattern: Ruffle Rib Baby Socks from Ann Budd's Better than Booties Baby Socks
Yarn: Quince and Co. Chickadee in the Rosa Rugosa colorway
Needles: Size 1 DPNs

In my ongoing effort to use up yarn, I made baby socks to match the Jubilee Cardigan I completed a month or so ago. I really enjoyed making these - this is the first time I've ever had short-row heel instructions in a pattern that made sense to me (you use it for the toe in these socks as well). I was actually enjoying the short rows as I went along. So much so, I found a few other sock yarn left overs with enough yardage so that I can make two more pair for the niece/nephew project. This is definitely going to be my go to baby sock pattern.
