Little baby socks and a BSJ!

I have been really bad at blogging lately. I blame Ravelry. It is much easier to just upload all the info, fill out the forms and voila you are done. I have decided to try to blog all my projects too though, just for my own personal satisfation. :)

So I am on a baby sock making kick. I have a friend due in May, so I made her a Baby Surprise Jacket and had enough yarn left over from the December shipment of the Rockin Sock Club to make some little socks to match:

Yarn: STR lightweight in Bella Coola from Dec. RSC shipment
Needles: Jacket, size 5 bryspun, socks size 3 KP harmony circulars

Baby Set

Sara's Baby Sweater

The socks are the Little Sky Socks from "New Pathways for Sock knitters" by Cat Bordhi. Super cute and easy to knit!

Then I also made some Little Coreolis socks for another friend in STR lightweight in the colorway Sherbert:


This is much closer to the true color:

(um yeah, I really need to bleach my grout apparently)

I have also made 2 more pairs of baby socks and another pair of Saartje's booties, but haven't uploaded the pictures yet.

Thanks so much for the lovely comments on my Forest Path Stole. I hope yours does come out of hibernation one day -- although I confess I can understand why it went that way. It can be a kind of dull knit!

The little booties and BSJ are gorgeous!! Whenever I see stuff like this I wish my friends had more babies. :)
