Happily, another family I know had a baby, and so he is now the recipient of my new favorite baby item:
Knowing this little baby was a boy, I decided to add some little blue stripes.  I like how they look like soccer socks a little.  I did the Interlock bindoff this time, so the tops don't roll when not filled with a fat little leg, but they are just as stretchy as the correctly named Stretchy bindoff that I used on the last pair.

How much would you charge for a pair of these?

Hey Annonymous, sorry, right now I'm not set up to take orders, I'm just keeping my head above water with my current projects. But thanks for the compliment!

Well, I don't know what you expect my 5 day old daughter to wear on her feet. This is outrageous. I won't stand for it. I won't stand at all, actually, until there are knitted duck booties on my feet. Duck booty sit-in marathon starting... NOW!!

The Tardis socks have gone missing. The Ravelry page link says her blog is for sale. The Ravelry link for the sock goes to an archive page that does not show a thing. It looks like they are blue socks with the windows knitted or duplicate stitched over the top? Any other hints you can add for the self-starter? My nieces would love these and Ood both!

huh, the Ravelry link is working for me, but basically, yes, the windows and the police sign are done in duplicate stitch, and the panels of the doors are done in purl stitches on a knit ground with other vertical and horizontal purl rows sketching out the shape of the door. All the detail is done on the leg and the rest is just a normal sock. Good luck!
