Needle Notes
Scrappy Sock Yarn Preemie Hat by Knitting Daddy Greg Cohoon. Proceeds from pattern to Family Support Network of Central Carolina. $3.00 pattern. $1 off with code “Blueberry” until May 31, 2010.

Fascinating construction. No major mods. The only thing i did was to use the working yarn to graft the heel. I did not want to deal with two extra ends to weave in later. It worked fine. You do have to break the yarn and rejoin during the heal construction so there are a few more ends than normal for a sock.

Sooooo cute! Quick project for baby shower and is adorable!

I paired it with a pair of vintage Oshkosh overalls which was so cute. Emily bought a onesie that she paired with it.

Hi Paula,

I've been meaning to write to let you know that I knitted Lara Neel's Bootstrap Socks, and I love them! I'm on a bit of a Sock Architecture kick this spring - I'm working on "Adjoin" right now as a way of challenging myself to knit toe-up socks (I've done several that way, but I'm still not comfortable with the process.) I love the book - so much information, and great patterns.

Take care,
