Baby Boy

One of my co-workers is having a baby. I always like to knit or crochet a little something for the new arrival. I found this darling sock/bootie pattern online. It was a quick knit. I used DK weight mystery acrylic found in my stash. I like this bootie pattern so much, that I might enlarge it to adult size, using bulky yarn and make a few gifts. I added a little crocheted hat for my co-worker's baby boy. I made up the hat pattern as I went along. Basically, it's the granite stitch, increased to about 3 inches, then edged in a picot stitch.
Oh! One More Announcement - Check out Madgik's post today about a super-duper crafty sale on Saturday!!!

Great baby knits! I need to get out some of my old favorite bootie patterns too, since our newest granddaughter is arriving in Nov.

As soon as the yard sale is over--more stuff arriving today!

Hey uccellina! The booties pictured are a larger pair than the ones you saw at the SnB meeting last night. I like to knit a pattern over and over again to refine and change. This was a quick knit...very fun to make. I just cast on another pair in a pea green color....I'll bring them with me next week! See you!

It is always so thrilling for me to see someone's finished product from one of my patterns!

Aren't those booties FUN to make!? I just finished a pair for LDS Humanitarian as they can always use newborn sized booties for their Newborn kits.


Great way to use up small amounts of 'stash' too! =)

HUGS!!!
