I was knitting a lot of baby socks lately...knitting for the little ones is so fun since it goes way more quickly than an adult size sock! I finish a pair of baby socks in about 2 1/2 hours.
I learned to knit socks from Silver's tutorial HERE
. It was easy to understand and has lots of pictures. Plus, Silver is a mod here, so if you have trouble, you might be able to coax her into helping you!
The baby sock pattern I used is just your basic baby socks
. I found the pattern well written and easy to follow. She also has some free patterns for toddler socks.
