Knitting for Babies is Fun!

Thursday I had some time to kill between getting off early for the holiday weekend and picking up hubby from work. We carpool and he had to stay until five. I stopped in at the Hilltop Yarn shop and picked up some yummy stuff to make these booties (if you scroll down the page a bit on the right you can click to get a PDF of the free pattern) for a friends baby boy due in September.

The blue I chose looks a lot more green in the above photo. My friend really liked them and they were super simple and quick to knit up. I started them around 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon and by 3 o'clock the next day I was sewing on the buttons (that was not non-stop knitting mind you).

I have started a second pair for my sister as she is due in the beginning of August. She won't tell me the baby's sex but I suspect a boy. If it's a girl I will have to make her pink ones and give the second set I started to my friend as well.

Spilling Buckets - don't worry I too have projects that are unfinished. I started a wrap and gloves that are still on the needles. These were literally a breeze to complete! Good luck getting your stuff finished!
