tiny socks

tiny socks, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

I have been knitting. Mostly for my little niece, blogname Tiny, who was born on 7th October. This was taken on her first evening at home. She has enormous feet, so I don't think these socks will fit for long. :)

Yarn: Hand-dyed sock yarn bought in Hay on Wye. I've now lost the ball band, so can't tell you the name of the dyer.

Needles: 2mm circs

Pattern: Better than Booties Baby Socks by Anne Budd. (Ruffle rib version)

Started and finished: sometime in September 09

The blanket you can just see was made for me when I was a baby by some relative or other (not quite sure who. There are various knitters in my family. Even my dad has been known to knit). It's lovely to see it being used for the first of the next generation.

Was it dyed by Jenny Cook for the shop called Wool and Willow? I visited it this summer and bought some alpaca laceweight in a similar colourway.

I think you might be right. A little googling suggests Wool and Willow was indeed where I bought it. Well done Anne!

Those are some gorgeous socks. It reminds me that I should be knitting some for my niece as winter is fast approaching here in London!
