Baby Booties!

My sister mentioned that she has several clients who are expecting and wanted to knit them gifts.  I was quick to offer my services, as I have a lot more free time than my always-working sister.  I started with a pair of Saartjes Booties (ravelry link), a pattern which I have admired.  I used some left over silk-wool blend you might recognize from the cabled hot-water bottle cozy made in December.

The other pattern I used, these ones a quick knit for a co-worker’s baby born Thursday, were Lavish Booties by Lion Brand.  I really was not a fan of the finished result, nor the pattern, but in the end they are not too bad.  I took adorable pictures, which I think helps.

There were plenty of other things I did this weekend, but there is only so much blog one should put up at a time.

For those of you who don’t have Ravelry yet and need links to the free patterns above, here are links easily accessible to you.  Saartjes Booties (free pattern is a PDF on the right side)  &   Lavish Booties (you will need to be registered to Lion Brand Yarn to open it).
