I recently finished a pair of baby socks, which ended up being big enough to fit me.
Here is a link to the original pattern: http://www.knitting-crochet.com/easbabsoc.html
The baby socks are supposed to look like the picture on the site. Hope you have better luck with this.
LOL - sorry, I know it isn't funny ... You should've seen my first baby bootie!! I may have fit when the kid was 3 or 4 years old!!! I did end up making two more from another pattern. Still wasn't small enough for a newborn, but lots smaller than the first one. Frustrating isn't it?
Yeah, I've had big baby bootie syndrome too. Did you use a real fine yarn like the pattern called for? I get into the most trouble when I try to use heavier yarn. LOL Looks like you have the right idea though.
I used worsted weight yarn, which is probably why they turned out so big...eventually I ended up finding another use for them when I wasn't using them...Swiffer cloths, who knew? Anyhow, if I make another pair, I'll try to do it correctly or close to it, when I'm not too tired.
