Diddle liddle liddle lum


Not socks for an infant Jake the Peg - a "pair and a spare" of baby socks.

Years ago when baby knitting was pretty much all I did, I tried to always make a "pair and a spare" for people I knew because babies are expert bootee losers.

Scraps of Patons Dreamtime 4ply baby wool - each sock takes about 5g total.

V sensible. I've avoided 'lost sock syndrome' simply because of the hot weather not necessitating sock wearing. I foresee lost socks becoming the norm in the next few months.

The socks are so cute, but now I have that song in my head!!!

Great idea - the pair and spare!

I never thought of that. Now when I make baby socks, I'll make a spare too.

Sooooo cute. Do you reckon that you'd have to make 4, if it was for Jake the Peg? A trio and a spare?

They are so cute. I just love miniature knitted items.
