I made these for a coworker who is pregnant, and doesn't know the sex of the baby.  I think they're pretty gender-neutral.  I've made a few pairs of these, they're super easy and a huge bang for the buck.  Plus, I don't like socks, so it gives me something to make with all that fabulous sock yarn.

I'm in love with the bee buttons!  When I went to buy them, I brought one bootie with me, and for some reason decided that four buttons would be enough for two pairs of booties, not two booties.  Thankfully, I decided to buy "extra" in case I wanted to make more - which means I actually just had enough for one pair.

Adorable color & button choices!  If I was a knitter I think I'd be addicted to these, too!  Isn't it weird how you lose your counting ability sometimes in the fabric or craft store?  I try to make lists and sometimes I even remember to bring them!

I love these little booties, and I agree that they are gender neutral.  You did a great job, even down to the button choice!   :)What yarn did you use?

I don't knit OR babies but I LOVE those booties - cute!

Thanks so much!
The yarn is Claudia's Handpainted, in "Carousel".  The buttons are from JoAnn's, they were something like half off $1.50 for 3 (I bought 6, which in my head was enough for two pairs...)
I've had a couple of conversations about making these for adults.  I think they'd somehow lose their charm on my giant feet, but you never know Wink
Hadassah - this is a really simple pattern, and probably a good way to learn increases and decreases, if you have even basic knitting skills, you may want to give it a try - they're so small that even if you really mess up, you're not wasting too much Smiley
