Finished Some Baby Socks

As part of a charity knitting project, I've been knitting booties, baby hats, and now little socks. They're cute, they knit up quickly, they're fun to do in crazy sorty of non-traditionally baby colors, and they use up leftover yarn (although you know I've had to buy yarn for this anyway!). Anyway, I've learned to knit a sock because of this project. I'm knitting them toe-up, and I'm not too sure that the short rows are looking all that good (the wrapped stitch part) but it's been a lot of fun. Here's a picture of my latest pair; this is just the first sock but I did the other one last night.

Hi bonnie, thanks! You can find the pattern here:

They go pretty quickly once you get the hang of it. The yarn is Plymouth Encore Colorspun, which is 75% acrylic & 25% wool so it can be washed! It's colorway 7129. I like it b/c I tend to stay away from "baby" colors.
