I've just ventured into the realm of baby booties, and I have to say, tiny projects are quite satisfying. My friend just had a baby and I thought it seemed like a great excuse to try knitting a pair. (Well, so far, just one, but the second is in the works for this weekend!) I used this pattern and it was pretty straight forward. It says they fit a newborn to three months, but this first one turned out kind of big. Even checked my gauge first too! Oh well, you have to assume they'll fit at some point down the road!

haha! it's funny when something is just mini version of something it automatically becomes cute!

Really cute, Julia. My foray into knitting things for wee ones has taught me that many children's patterns (so far all of the ones I've used!) make things way bigger than the age/size indicated. Don't know why it's this way! I usually use a smaller gauge of yarn/smaller needles to make up for the difference. Or I knit down a size and it ends up the actual size I wanted.

Arlie - Too true, squeeze!!

Kim - Of course when I started this project you were one of the first people I thought of :) Thanks for the tip on the patterns, so odd that they all would be sized a little big! Then again, I tend to be a loose knitter, usually always have to downsize needles!

Jenya - Thank you! I love red and beige together :)

Elizabeth - Thank you!!! :)
