Just thought I'd put this up, in case anyone is planning on knitting up some baby socks.

Apparently, tight socks on babies can cause lesion/bumps at about one week old that may later become scars.

they do say it's only an emerging problem, but there's no sense taking chances at that age

Another reason to remember to "cast on loosely" Poor babies. Makes me wonder, though why parents would put socks on that were that tight. I also wonder where they got them because my kids could never keep their socks on!
