I had (just!) enough of the handspun, 3 ply, camel/silk laceweight to finish this little pair of baby socks.
The natural camel color might be a little odd for a baby item, but I like the slight color variations the natural fiber gives and didn't want to mess with overdyeing them. Besides, I think it gives them a bit of an antique, "heirloom" look.
They are 4 inches long. I asked around at the Knitter's Review forum for suggestions on a good size for newborn-ish babies.
