green baby socks

I made these baby socks for Marie-Eve and Daniel's baby, due in a couple weeks. The pattern came from "Simple Crochet for Cherished Babies" by Jane Davis, which has a ton of adorable patterns, but all the patterns seem to have egregious mistakes! Even the pattern for these simple socks had a mistake in how much ribbing to make. Kind of inexcusable, but luckily I was able to pick up the slack and still finish these in a few hours.

progress on purple socks!

Although I abandoned these poor socks for a few months, I have recently made some progress! Sock #1 is done, and Sock #2 is coming close to its final few rounds. I swear I did the same exact pattern for both socks, but the second one is coming out much wider and longer. I had to frog a bunch of stitches and redo them to fit - at least I'm learning how to create custom shapes and fits.
I love how my crochet hook matches the yarn. Scrumptious.
