I was having coffee with a couple of crafty friends the other day, when a new idea came up. (Cheryl is a wonderful seamstress who makes great purses, and Megan makes the most beautiful note cards.)
We were talking about my socks and
mittens and they mentioned they have a friend who is known for wearing unique
socks, and that friend is having a baby. That of course sparked the idea of
baby socks. As I walked home, thoughts of baby socks ran through my head, which
led to a search of baby sock patterns on Ravelry (Ravelry has the most amazing
pattern search functionality!), and the next thing you know I’m rummaging
through my leftover sock yarn and I pulled out some that could be sacrificed
for a sock trial.
The first pair of socks was so darn
cute, that they were soon followed by three more pairs. I saw Cheryl again on
Saturday and gifted her with the following bunch of baby socks which she can
now re-gift to her sock loving friend.
