I knit these socks for my baby because I have lots of little balls of leftover sock yarn that I want to use up.  These are knit toe up so that every last inch of that leftover yarn can be used up with these.  The last thing I need is to try to use up my tiny ball of yarn only to have an even tinier ball left over.   Undecided

I added some ribbing on the top of the foot to *try* to make them stay on longer but she still pulls them off in 2 seconds.  They fit nice and snug for that 2 seconds, though.  

I also did the top in a twisted rib pattern because when my baby doesn't pull her socks off, they end up all twisty around her foot so I may as well make them look that way to begin with! Wink

I wrote up the pattern and that, along with some more details, can be found here: http://thinkingmama.wordpress.com/2008/03/21/socks-cute-little-socks/.
