My DS said that her DH might be happy for a pair of socks for his birthday. That's the black-and-blues up to the right. Under them a pair of 37-38s are finished.
With the yarn left over from the brother-in-law's socks I gave a little baby hat a try. Munchkin is the name of these hats and this is not the most beautiful one I've seen. They should be longer and much pointier.
Have a look here at some sweet newlyborns with munchkin hats. I will keep trying.
