I am not one to give up. Despite the failure of my first booty attempt, my mission to knit a few pairs of baby booties for my good friend and little sister (both preggers) remained. So, back to Ravelry.com i went, searching for an ‘easy’ knit pattern that would utilize the USA grown cotton yarn i picked up at the local yarn shop recently. I found a goody! I just love what the pattern’s author says about it:
Oh My! Baby Booties are now available as a crochet pattern as well The perfect basic baby booties! Dress them up or dress them down, these little cotton booties are comfortable for baby and such a quick knit you could make them in the car, in labor, on the way to the hospital and have them darned and ready to go before it’s time to push!
Cute, right? If you knit or crochet and you’re not already on Ravelry, get on over there. If you are on Ravelry, add this project to your to do list, especially if you’re a beginner looking for an easily followed pattern that’ll make a versatile and cute finished project. I have plans for these booties, but i don’t want to give too much away before they arrive at their new mom’s shower. So here are just some teaser photos. More to follow after the mommy’s get the first look.
This week’s featured Fiber Friend is a little tri-color Pembroke who’s looking for some sheep to herd or bars to be agile around. Find more photos of this “micro” corgi at my Etsy shop.
