I gifted these to a friend of mine  a few weeks ago.  I managed to forget to take a pic of them finished though.  Here are some progress shots.  The pdf has three of the patterns shown in the pick.  I started with the ruffled rib, but it looked funny so I switched to the cable rib socks. 




I broke the tip off one of the needles and one of them developed a curve which still worked but felt weird.  I sent Brittany Needles an email and they sent me three more needles.  I must send them a thank you email! 

Pattern: IK Better-than-Booties Baby Socks cable rib
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull #2203
Needles: 2.5mm dpns

Very cute!  I remember seeing those patterns, but size 0?!?!?  Size 2 feels like toothpicks to me, you are brave!

rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony.

Wow, the socks are cute, but more importantly I have a beef with Brittney needles too! I have a very nice pair of US 7s from them, that as I type, are warping more and more with every row I knit.

Maybe I'll send them a letter too, because I'm pretty sure they came that way.

Those needles are pretty much glorified toothpicks! Wink

I don't think mine came that way, but I don't know how it happened.  I dont' know that I will use the needles much after this, but they were the perfect length for these tiny socks.  I just order the Knit Picks dpns in size 0-4 and I think I will like them better.   I emailed them and it took a couple weeks for them to respond, but I got the new needles soon after.
