  1. I have some sock yarn remnants and I am going to cast on a pair right now! I'll let you know how they come out8O) THanks so much. By the way, my baby socks all go to an orphanage. And, I have a rescued Pitty too!

  2. i have 12 stitches on my needle and it says: knit 18 stitches onto needle 1, however i have 2 needles with 12 stitches on each? how do i add 18 stitches? thankyou

  3. I want to make these for a young lady at work having her first baby. I think she will be thrilled to get them. We don't know if it is a girl or boy yet but I think these will be darling in any color. I'll just pick one that both sexes can wear. Thank You for sharing

  4. I am SO sorry for the delay, I just haven't had the time to blog and I've not even looked for comments! (hangs head in shame!) You found a typo THANK YOU! There are 36 stitches so there are 18 stitches per needle not 12! Again, So Sorry!
