Here's my version, made for my boss who just had his first baby (can you tell it was a girl?):
They were made on Valley Yarns Shelburne (alpaca, wool, and acrylic blend of some sort) on needles about 2 sizes bigger than what the pattern called for. I think the baby will be able to wear them to her high school prom they turned out so big.
Here they are all wrapped up! I think the box really makes the gift.
