Baby booties designed to look like they're galoshes, which are the perfect baby gift up here in the Pacific Northwest. I found the pattern on ravelry:http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/booties-baby-goshalosh-boots
It calls for an e-hook with worsted weight yarn, and once I got used to the intentional stitch tightness, they worked up exactly as the pattern said they would. I had some issues with the design of the pattern on the page--the design choices in the written patern; not the instructions--and got frustrated a few times because I found the pattern hard to follow at times because of how it was laid out.
I will say, once I got them done, I was very pleased, and now that I know the design of the written pattern has some visual tracking issues for me (I kept skipping rounds because of inconsistent spacing that made me think certain rounds were the rounds I'd always worked), I think the next pair will be less hook-snapping frustration.
Oh, I used Red Heart soft, by the way, which seemed to work up exactly like the Caron Simply Soft used in the original work.
