That's a nice sock - congrats, happy birthday & happy 2007! Oh, and thanks for the pattern link, too. Just curious - what hook size did you use with your Bernat Softee Baby?

I started with an F hook, which is one size smaller than the yarn calls for, for my narrow feet. Then when I started the ankle and heel I switched to a G. Smiley

I used the toe up one in the link to close up the heel. The rest was winged, but essentially the same as the pattern. I didn't do nearly as many increases, though. Wink

Thanks everybody! Happy New Year to you guys, too! Cheesy

Thanks! I used the two colors of baby yarn that I had around. Bernat Softee Baby. It's acrylic, but it's soft and sort of a thinner weight.

I meant to mention before that I made the last round on the cuff too tight. It's a bit of a struggle to get it over my heel. Next time, I'll know! As soon as I can, I'm making rainbow socks! Whee! Tongue

Just a little update... I never made the second one. Even the thinner 'baby' weight of the yarn made the stitches too... bumpy to be terribly comfortable. It would work great for slipper socks, but I really wanted socks I could wear with shoes. Next time I'll be using sock yarn, which should also solve the problem of the cuff being tight. Sock yarn is stretchy and um, meant for sock-making! Tongue
