The socks are for the Afghans for Afghans newborn campaign. It's a great way to use up little bits of yarn for a good cause.

The fingerless mitts are for a Christmas gift for one of my DDs.

I managed to make both the socks and mitts match by measuring the first color I cast on with. ;)

Both the socks and the mitts look *great*! I love the colors on the mitts, and the socks are so bright and cheery. They are sure to be a hit!

I might see if my DMom wants to do a baby sock-knit-along with me to send some socks to the charity you mentioned. Do they have to be any particular type of yarn, do you know?

If you are knitting for A4A they garments of any type have to be wool or mostly wool..the more the better.

The pattern was given to me by someone who took a class at another LYS. There isn't copyright info on it, but I'd be afraid to post the entire thing. Here's the basics;

Using sock yarn CO about 54 stitches or a multiple of 6. K3P3 for about 5 in and BO 10 st for the thumb and CO on 10 stitches when you come back around to that same spot. Knit for another 2 in or so and BO. Super easy.

Thanks for all the kind words!:hug:
