So after a long 7 month haul of pregnancy and a blanket disaster, I have finaly finished my first knitting project for my baby to be. Simple, yes. Did it only take an hour, yes. But dammit I am proud of them. Especially since I have to start all over on the blanket!

Hat is in progress and booties will come next. They are all minty green 100% Wool. And it was on sale!! Knit on #5 DPNS and a simple crochet chain to keep them together. Enjoy my "work".

hmm.  Wool is warm... but it can cause problems on that fresh, soft baby skin.  You might want to think about lining your mittens with fleece or cotton or something.  Maybe buy some cheap scratch mitts and sew them inside?  THe booties will probably be okay in wool because baby will likely have socks inside.

contrasting fleece does sound nice. we'll see how it goes, it is an oddly soft wool, i didn't even realize it was till i got to reading the label.

Wool is fine on most babies, my daughter had wool diaper covers she wore from birth.

SOO CUTE! Are they foot booties or hand booties? If they are hand booties I would be concerned about the string being a strangulation hazard... maybe its not one long string, I cant tell.

GREAT JOB THOUGH, love the color!

i was thinking the same thing about the strangulation. but they are lovely. great work.  i am just starting to learn to knit/crochet.  i think i know why the string is there though- so they dont get lost or fall off, right?
maybe you could find a way to attach a short string to the side of a coat or something so they wont get lost and wont pose a risk of strangulation?  just an idea.

Well I have some for my toddlers that have a long string attached but they go through their winter coats (behind their backs and down the sleeves and stay in the coat that way, but beings this is for a baby is mostly why I worried.

that is exactly what they are for, they really come in no contact with baby other than through the sleves, because frankly...a newborn can't keep it's mittens on it self. The mitties thread through the sleves of the coat and go across the inside back, a loop will have to be put in the jacket they are going in to keep the tie secure inside. something as illustrated here:



no worries. i have no plans of baby strangling anytime soon. and I'm not the first or last person to have string mittens! Smiley
