Baby Booties.. and MORE Baby Booties!

May 14, 2007 texaspch7

My boyfriend has a friend whose wife had a baby about three weeks ago.  So I thought it would be a nice gesture to knit something for the baby… totally taking after my mom!!  lol  So I picked out a nice simple pattern for Baby Booties.  I was so excited to start this new and different project… I started last night around 11pm and finished one bootie around 2:30am this morning.  Well, everything minus sewing the sole of the bootie to the instep.  Unfortunately my blue plastic needle, that my mother lent to me, snapped in half last night — somwhere around 1am’ish.  😦  It was a good yarn needle while it lasted…

So while I was at work today, I thought it’d be an ingenuous idea to text message the friend of my boyfriend and have him measure his daughter’s foot… well the bootie was an inch too small!!  😦  So I put that aside and decided to start a whole other bootie, tweeking the directions, adding rows everywhere…. sigh, we’ll see how long this “nice gesture” goes.  lol  Here’s a picture of it!  Good practice though I must say.

    Definitely good practice! :o) I always make them bigger than their age so they can 1/2 way “grow” into them. At this stage they are like weeds!

    Booties are great quick projects and great practice for adult socks too! ;o)

    Are you crocheting those??

    Nice to see you branching out!
