Finished the baby socks. As you can see they are definitely not matchy matchy ;P, but close enough that you can tell they are a set. I used Knit Picks Options double pointed needles size 0, and the yarn was Premier Wool-Free Sock yarn in the Vegas Lights colorway. They were well loved. Anyone know if they make baby sock blockers?
I bought some yarn for a Chemo hat for a friend who is dealing with breast cancer. I went to Hobby Lobby and chose Yarn Bee Snuggle Up in the silver colorway and Yarn Bee Cloud 9 in the cream colorway, Hobby Lobby had a sale on their yarn and I like their yarn :). They are both soft yarns and together they are extremely soft. There is another hat pattern I want to knit and the designer said she will put it back up on Ravelry. I will post more about it when it’s up. Raverly is such a wonderful knitting community where we all share our love of knitting, crocheting, spinning and other fibery creativeness. This pattern I used is a Lion Brand Yarn free pattern called Fun-Fur – Mircospun Knit Chemo Cap. I used a size 10 bamboo 16″circular needle and a set of size 10 double pointed needles when I got to the crown.
I bit the bullet and bought a set of bamboo Addi Flexi-Flips size 0’s to knit socks with and they came in the mail today (my local yarn shop didn’t carry them.) Altho’ I enjoy knitting the socks, I hate the using the regular double pointed needles and I never learned to knit using the magic loop method. These are kinda like a combination of those methods and I thought I would give it a try. They are a bit pricey at $32 dollars a set. There are 3 needles in the set with a flexible cord that bends so that you can knit small radius round items items like socks. 🙂 Hopefully I will enjoy this method much better.

The baby socks are so colorful! Looking forward to reading about your experience with the FlexiFlips! I find that magic loop sometimes leaves a ladder with thinner yarn, so I’m guessing these would work so much better since you’re already used to DPNs!
