Socks for Rosie

Originally uploaded by blacksheepknits
Baby socks ROCK! I had one skein of Regia Bamboo Color and a quick-to-knit pattern and viola! If I had been able to knit straight through, they would have taken less than 4 hours. Don't let the pic fool you, they are the same length, though one is pointier in the toe and they need blocking. I LOVE this yarn. It looks like tiny ribbon candy and its almost as if it should have a sugary smell. I have enough for another pair too!

I never know whether to do one plain round after finishing toe decreases or to stop after the final decreases and then graft. Doing one plain round seems to make a pointier toe... Input for nOOb sock knitter?
