Baby Booties!

IMG_0107

Last month I went through a baby booty knitting obsession.  These are so quick and fun!  They challenge me just enough, but not as much as the sweater I am knitting for myself (that’s another story . . . it’s been in the basket untouched for over a month with only one sleeve left to do . . .).  These girly ones I gave to a friend who helps me an unbelievable amount at playgroup and recently welcomed a little girl named Mitzi!  The pattern is free on Ravelry.com (THE site for the knitting obsessed); just let me know if you want more info.

I have a TON of pictures I am behind on posting . . . soon I hope . . . but we have been so busy having fun!
