Great use for Yarn Leftovers: Baby Socks!


I’ve finally found use for all the yarn leftovers that has piled up over the years: baby socks! They have the perfect size for most of my leftovers, are very easy to knit and take no time at all, so a pair of socks can easily be fitted in between other knitting projects! Another reason to love being pregnant 😉 The yarn used for these socks are leftovers from one of my most difficult (and fun) knitting projects ever.

About the pattern: I’ve used this free pattern – but with 28 stitches (for newborn) instead of 40, some larger needles and a different type of yarn – the point was to use what I already had.


I’ve learned a great new trick: Instead of knitting with 5 double pointed needles (which I hate!), I’ve used circular needles. See the technique in this video:

  1. Yes they are too cute! My heart melts whenever I look at them – such a pleasure to knit 🙂

  2. Love the little tiny sock and thanks for sharing the video. I am now knitting my first sleeve with a circular needle, but not without severe anxiety attacks LOL
