As many fellow knitters know, sock yarn makes great baby yarn. In most cases it's machine washable and the gauge knits up into a very wearable fabric for babies & toddlers. The fall KNITTERS magazine featured a pattern called "Sock To Frock" knit in the Malabrigo sock yarn - a yarn I carry at Teaselwick. The colors of this hand-dyed yarn are lucious and it's soft!
Self patterning sock yarns make fun baby items as well. Soon on the shelf in the shop will be Berroco
Sox and a new book from Berroco with patterns for baby items using this yarn.
I hope everyone is having a happy new year so far. We may have a few months of cold & gray ahead of us but that means it's knitting time!
P.S. - The Fall 2010 issue of Knitters is available as a free download if you visit their website at www.knittinguniverse.com/knitters/k100. Because this issue is available for free they have given permission for me to give away free copies of "Sock To Frock" with yarn purchase. Come on in & let me know if you would like a copy of this pattern.
