Cuteness

I warned you there would be some baby knitting around these here parts with so many friends have babies lately.

Beware...cuteness ahead!

I knit this set for my BFF, Cockeyed, who is going to become a first-time grandma this fall! I finished these just in time last week to get them in the mail for her Grandma Shower...it was so hard to keep it a secret because, well, I can't help it, these wee little baby things are too cute!!

Can you believe I've knit over 75 pairs of socks, and not one pair has ever been baby socks? Booties, yes. But not wee little socks. Goodness I loved these- and yes, I'm sooo counting these toward my 52 pair plunge (hey, they say its okay, and you know there is no way I'll get to 52 pairs in a year, so I'm counting them!).

The pattern....I'm calling it Sweet Baby Cate, as the pattern was inspired by my Cotty design (named after my great-aunt Catherine). I think I'm even going to write it up. Maybe the cuteness is from the picots? Or the colorway? Socks that Rock, mediumweight, colorway Peek-a-boo-Peony.

Or maybe because they are just so wee.

Happy Knitting!!

I don't know what's cuter--that sock set or the idea of a "grandma shower!"

I love passingdowncrazy's idea; grandma should definitely have a matching pair.

Baby stuff is always so cute! I don't intend on having children myself, but I love all the cute baby clothes projects- I can't wait until I'm an aunt and have a little niece or nephew to dress!

Come to think of it, I've knit baby booties, but never baby socks either! That pattern translated beautifully!

OMG, that is the most beautiful set of baby hat and socks I have ever seen! I love cockeyed and she is lucky to have you as a friend:). Pretty please with sugar on top will you write up this set.
