... I may present you SOCKS....
The last pair of socks I made when I was 12 and stuck in Home Ed so I kind of got forced...cause back then I thought knitting isn't cool at all...but times change and these were actually really fun to make (cause I choose to make them).
A big Thank you goes to knittinfiasco for helping me out with turning the heel and for showing me the cool website (knittinghelp.com)...
The pattern for the Socks is called 'Little Guys' and is in the book 'Knit Socks!' by Betsy Lee McCarthy. I didn't use the furry yarn for the top part though.
I used Bernat Softee Baby in 'Candy Baby' and I made both socks at the same time on two sets of DPN to avoid the scary second sock syndrome...

Last but not Least, the socks...

Thank you Guys...
@ Craftykatt : don't be afraid of heels or turning it or anything it's really easy once you see how it's done, knittinghelp.com did the trick for me, there are a lot of videos...

Your socks are so adorable!!! I have yet to find a baby sock pattern that I like, I may have to check that book out.
CraftyKatt: I was scared of the heels too, but now they are my favorite part. Just give it a try, you may like it.

They're so cute, they make me happy inside. I, too, am afraid of heels. One day though, one day...

Agreed. I have had the hardest time finding an appealing (read: appealing and free) toddler sock pattern.

Kachoo: These socks are so cute. Love the colors, too. They look a little like the Thuja socks modified for a baby...which I've actually considered doing.

@phoebefayre: why don't you go to a library and check their knitting books, if you find something you like you can always make a copy and it's free Grin
