Two pairs of baby booties and two pairs of children socks is finished.

I v finished two of the three pairs of the children's socks I m knitting on and have started on the third pair; I have to knit the heel and I m not sure if I m gonna knit my normal short row heel which you can find here.
This is only in Norwegian but do contact me and I ll help you if you want to try it in English.
The video can be found here.

Or I am thinking of trying the Tomato heel but you have to buy the pattern but you can find the video here

I will show you and tell you what heel I decided to when I m done.
Here I have photos of the two finished pairs of socks , I v written what yarn I v used in one of the earlier posts.

Also I found out someone I know is expecting a baby girl so I wanted to knit a little quick present for her and I v always wanted to knit something for premature and ill babies so I decided to go for baby booties.
I v knitted two pairs now and am working on the third pair which I m making a little bit bigger.
The pattern says they should fit 0-6 months but I m not sure I think maybe 0-3 months is more accurate so I m trying to knit them one size bigger.
I ll let you know how many stitches and so on I have changed for the bigger size but the original pattern is here

Socks and more socks ; size 38 female and size 1/2 y old and 2/4 y old.....

Here is the first pair of socks I v knitted for  myself ; They are knitted with one thread of "step 6" and drops baby alpakka silk".
I cast on 52 stitches but note to myself on the next pair i can go down about 8 stitches atleast knitting with that combo of yarn.
They do however look pretty nice if I can say so myself.

These are a pair of childrens socks, well no its not yet a pair...........
Its one of each of what are suposed to be two pairs of childrens socks in size 1 - 2 y old and 2-4 y old but I started and finished one sock (the biggest one) but in the mean time I got some new yarn I was so keen to try that I started on the smaller sized sock so I could test it out so thats why I have one of each but as I m typing I have already started on the 2nd sock to 1-2 y old sized sock they will get theire matching partner soon.

I placed my knitting needles "around" the sock so you could see the size in proportion too.

The 1-2 y old  socks is knitted in Katia merino 100% [ 100% merino superwash in grey , colour 505 ]
mixed with Katia Darling  pure merino wool superwash [60% virgin wool and 40% polyamid , colour 206 ]

The 2-4 y old sized socks is knitted in Step 6 in blue ish colours and some different blue and turqouise thin alpaca wool in the striped on the rib.
