Rhonda's socks

Boy, this week has flown by. I've had this photo uploaded for a while, just waiting to be blogged.

So here are Rhonda's socks being modeled by the boy himself. I even managed to color coordinate them with his outfit! The tiny feet are so adorable!

Thank you again, Rhonda!

Ridiculously Tiny Foot

Originally uploaded by knitswithasilentk
I managed to get my ridiculously tiny sock onto his foot. It was a tight fit, but it went on. It's tight enough that I'm opting NOT to make another one the same; this one can continue its life as a Christmas ornament or something. But I might make a pair with the same yarn on slightly bigger needles.

It's amazing how small his feet really are!

New FO for Cinco de Mayo

Our new baby was born on Monday, May 5. We're so happy to have him at home! He is a joy to both of us, every minute. Here he is at 50 minutes old. Will blog more when less tired....

Spiral striped sock in progress

Originally uploaded by knitswithasilentk
Here is the spiral striped sock, as of Friday. I've since finished the heel flap and am now on to the foot, and it's evident that this sock (while lovely) will be too big for a newborn. That's okay - I'll save it. But I'm back to thinking that the "ridiculously tiny sock" might be pretty close to just-born size feet, and wishing I'd made the second one.

I think I'll finish this one, and then start on a second "ridiculously tiny" sock.
