Hmmm....I tried these last night with two skeins of the same yarn, different colors.  The blue pair came out perfectly; the green pair came out so much bigger than the blue ones.  I'm not sure why, since I did them one after the other, but I guess the baby will just grow into the green ones!  I'm on vacation, and my cables for my digi cam are at work, but I'll post pics soon.

I have to say that as a very inexperienced knitter, this was a great project for learning new stiches without the risk of ruining hours of work.  I was so afraid to try anything with slip stiches, but now that I know how easy it is, my list of projects has quadrupled!

Edit:  I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me convert this to an adult-sized pattern.  My friend bought some knit socks/shoes from Wal-Mart, but since I refuse to step foot in that place, and because we knit, I'd like to make some myself.  I wear a women's 10-11....any help?

Yoohoo! Yesterday I finally got the pattern for the 1 hour booties, after drooling over it for months and months.. So I started knitting a pair right away, with a bit of yarn from stash and 7 mm needles (my baby girl is 11 months, so I kind of hoped it might fit this way..)
And here they are :

They do kind of fit, but just. I didn't do a strap yet, I'm still thinking about what I want to do, but they already look awesome without... plus I only have about 1 meter of yarn left ..! Like this leftover yarn was intended exactly for that pattern !!!

...Anyway, the pattern is really clever, and so quick too ! I just couldn't believe I had already finished them !
I'll definitively knit more of those..

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww. . .so cute!

I love those red baby booties.  And yes, I think they look quite nice without the strap as well.  A job well done.

She is adorable and I say it is never too early to instill a love of fashionable footwear!  And I can tell from the picture that she loves them and her talented mommy too!!!!!

Here are the ones I made w/o the buttons yet.  I also made a matching Umbilical Cord hat...w/o the umbilical cord.

I used Wendy Peter Pan yarn in Blossom (DK weight, doubled) for both.  The booties are addictive...I could make millions of them.  So quick and easy (now that I figured out the crochet part).

If you can't beat 'em, knit for 'em.

I love the 1 hour booties! I voted against the button because buttons and babies just don't go together in my mind. Here they are 

Now, I have to ask, are babies feet really this small? I can't remember... I can make them bigger if anyone thinks these are more for a doll. I am giving them to a woman I work with who is due any day now, but I won't be giving them to her until she comes back in to show the little one off. These literally take an hour (or less) so making another pair might actually be fun.

Here's a pic. with a pen to scale. Do these look to small?

Yes babies feet really are that small :-)  I made the small ones for my little boy and they are just now fitting at 3 mos.  ...of course, he is a little guy so far.

Last night I was just about to start in on a baby blanket for my future niece/nephew, I'd even cast-on! Then my boyfriend mentioned his co-worker had given birth over the weekend. I HAD to give the one-hour booties a try!

The yarn is Wool Ease Thick and Quick, kool-aid dyed by me.
