Baby Steps

Thanks so much for all of the nice comments you've left, everyone! I really love to read them all.
:)


I have put down the dishcloths for a couple of days, and found another pattern to become obsessed with.

This is such a cute, quick knit! I'd been seeing such adorable versions of Christine's Baby Booties, that I had to give the pattern a try. Luckily for me, there is a neighbor, who has a little boy in LD's class, and she has just had a baby girl!

I'm planning on finishing the pink ones, and making another pair for her. The multi-colored ones are a little bit bigger. I know it's hard to tell from the photo. I think I'll give these two pair to the Mommy and let her decide if the third pair should be in the bigger or smaller size.

Then, I am going to make a pair or two for a friend who graduated high school with me. Her mother told me she is expecting a baby. Her first! I took the booties to the library to show them off, and she told me. She's very excited!

As soon as I finish the icord ties, I'll take a better pic to put on my finished objects blog. I'll give all of the yarn, and needle details on there.

You know the Koigu from the last post? I am thinking about some lacy socks for myself. Here's a random bit of info about me. I have never knit socks in a solid color before! I have done almost solid handdyed socks, but they were slightly stripy, and speckly. This will be my first time using Koigu, and my first time knitting with a solid colored yarn. Weird!

Remember to click on the pic and see those adorable little booties big!

Well, I have to go do laundry and the dishes. (and vacuum and sweep) That way, I can knit guilt free!
Have a great weekend, and knit on, everybody!!

So many babies! I would say bigger, but both my boys had huge feet when born so they couldn't wear the little stuff. My nephew had the tiniest feet for a couple of years.

i like the multi-colored booties! they're so cute. :) I haven't made socks with a solid colored yarn either. I'm sure they'll come out great and there are so many lacy sock patterns out there!

they are adorable. I love knitting baby stuff. You can have all the style you want and the item is finished quickly. I always knit booties for presents. Most folks are shocked to have something homemade in this day and age.
