knitting for baby

stay-on booties

From the first pair of these booties I knitted over a year ago, to countless pairs I have knitted since and given to new expectant moms, all I really ever wanted was to be able to knit a pair for me. After just finishing up and gifting two other pairs, I quickly knitted up this pair this week for our new baby to come in a few short months.

There are so many other things I want to make, its just these . . . they were high up on my list. I knitted them in Koigu (my favorite fingering weight yarn) and for those who are thinking of giving this pattern a try, may I suggest knitting the i-cord 16" instead of 14". I think it makes for an easier cord to tie.
