I have two skeins of sock yarn that don't match, so I'm making socks for Jameson. These took about four hours. And they stay on!
I gotta say... Awwwww! Those are cute. Is that Koigu yarn? It's very pretty.
I would love to use Koigu, but it's out of my price range! Maybe if this one is a girl, I'll slurge!

CUUUUTE! Is it a free pattern? If so link a girl up! What size are they? Nathalie seems to be running large for her age, my first time with a bigger-than-the-clothes-sized baby.

Cast on 36 stitches, join, knit 11 rows k2p2
K 1 row
Turn, slip 1 stitch, p 17 stitches
Work back and forth in stockinette on 18 stitches, slipping first stitch, until it's roughly square, ending on a WS row
Slip 1, k11, k2tog, turn (should be 4 stitches left)
Slip 1, p8, p2tog, turn (should be 4 stitches on that side too)
Slip 1, k to one stitch before gap, k2, turn
Slip 1, p to one stitch before gap, p2, turn
Repeat those two rows until you've run out of stitches, ending on RS row
Pick up and knit the slipped stitches along the edge of the heel flap.
Knit across 18 stitches on top of foot
Pick up and knit the slipped stitches along the other side of the heel flap.
Knit rest of heel stitches and accross the top again
K1, K2 tog, K to last three heel stitches, ssk (or SYTK), K1, K top 18 stitches
Repeat previous row until back at 36 total stitches.
Knit until bottom of foot measures about 1 inch less than total desired length
K1, ssk, K to last three bottom stiches, k2tog, K2, ssk, K to last three top stitches, K2tog, K1
K one round
Repeat previous two rounds twice, then repeat just the decrease round twice, 16 stitches remaining, kitchner toe.
The whole thing is easiest if you keep top stitches on one side of your needle, and bottoms stitches on the other side (if magic looping) or keep top stiches on one dp and bottom stitches split evenly on two dps. This keeps all your decreases on the edges of the needles.
cool i cut and pasted it right into a file. That is a cool gift to make with leftovers when one hears short notice of a baby shower.
