Barely There Socks

Youngest son just got some light brown suede clogs and wanted a pair of "footies" to match. I just made my very first sock on sock weight yarn! :-)

The pattern is from the Knitting Pattern a day calendar, the May 1st 2007 entry for Barely There Socks by Jill Schaefer. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock (80% Superwash Wool, 20% Nylon) in Chino colorway. They should be washable so I hope I don't wind up with a pair of baby booties when they get washed by him.

The toe is grafted, instead of the 3 needle bind off but it looks a little strange. I'm sure the 3 needle would have been the same but I'm not quite sure what I would have done differently. Now... I better cast on for that second sock or it will never get done!

Great job on the socks! I'm so glad I found your blog, I'm in need of your help! I have a copy of this sock but I believe only the 1st half. I started it up today and then sat back to really read through the pattern, I noticed that it ends with the heel. Could you post or send me a copy of this pattern please?

The gusset and the rest of the pattern is on the back of that day's page...
