these baby booties are actually from the 'simple socks' pattern from 'simple knits for little cherubs' by erika knight.

this is a really straightforward pattern, and it helped me learn several new skills!  i guess it was less intimidating to try something new because the project was so small.

these are also fun because they use so little yarn.  i could get another pair (or, better yet, a matching hat and bib!) from the same skein.  hmm, i guess i know what my next project should be!

Super cute stripes, they look really comfy. Good job on the trying something new front... I have yet to attempt socks.... or knitting in the round in general.... I guess I should put that on my to do list. can't wait to see the matching bib and hat!

these are knit on straight needles, all one piece, and then sewn up!  hence the 'simple' part  Cheesy  i haven't knit in the round yet either.  circular needles don't scare me too much, but double-pointeds . . . terrifying!

the things that were new to me were mattress stitch, some kind of increase that i hadn't done before, and picking up stitches.  i tend to knit rectangles.

These are so cute. I want to make baby things but I have no one to give them too  Sad

Aaaaaw, i like those!  I think a matching hat would be a nice touch, go for it!

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
