When I started knitting, my first project was a pair of baby booties, and it's still one of my favorite patterns. It's pretty much a given that any friends of mine who have babies are going to get a pair. So today Charlize's mom sent me this pic of her modeling my most recent pair. I hope they warm her feet as much as this picture warms my heart. Awwwww....

Thanks for the kind

Thanks for the kind comments, guys! The pattern is out of a Leisure Arts beginner book called "I Can't Believe I'm Knitting." The pattern is made flat starting at the sole. It has some easy instep shaping and then it's seamed from the cuff down after you've cast off.

Wonderful picture. Those

Wonderful picture. Those booties are my favorites for babies. I tried adapting them for adults....bad move. One sister, Irene, said they reminded her of Daffy Duck feet. That got frogged right away. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
