So, it turns out that babies outgrow their handknit socks just as fast as everything else. Bummer. (I knit quite a few from this awesome—and free—pattern.) But happily I can report that these socks at least have found a new life, thanks to my three-year-old son.
Sammie the Sock Monster:
And of course I'm making more—a little larger—but this time I think I'll take a tip from Bunny and Sammie and make the socks longer, maybe mid-calf. That way baby Norah won't be able to kick them off so easily, or at least that's the plan. I'll let you know if my trickery works.
Happy knitting all!
