Knitted Baby Gifts

I love giving knitted gifts to my friends who are expecting.  I very recently gave a pair of knitted socks to Katie who is expecting. 
It was a simple Two-Needle sock pattern by Debbie Bliss knitted as one piece and sewn down the back.  I can't remember which of her books it is from since I photocopied it years ago from one of her books loaned from the library.  The yarn is by Tess Designer Yarns which I purchased at a Stitches West conference a few years ago.  It is a superwash merino that is soft and has a nice elasticity to it. Since the pattern is for a 6 month-old baby, it knits up fast.  I think it can be done in a day if you knit quickly.

Now that this project is done, it makes me want to knit more regularly!
