One of the best gifts for the new baby, besides a blanket are tiny socks. They are quick to make, and a great project for the beginner sock knitter. The instructions for this adorable, simple sock design is available at Purl Soho. The socks are made in Season Alpaca, a luxurious 100% baby alpaca yarn; an excellent choice next to baby’s skin. If you need to make a gift for a new arrival, a wardrobe of colourful socks would be greatly appreciated.
