Ingrid's two-tone

Here is a picture of 2 types of booties that ingrid made. Both are from Knitting for baby with slight modifications.

Yesterday I gave away my first pair of completed booties. i gave the hippie booties to their rightful owner, and they were too small. dangit! the baby's older sister quickly adopted them for her baby doll. at least they fit something.

Hippie Booties Finished

I started these before The knit-along, but I thought I would post about them here anyway. I finished the hippie baby booties


i made these out of a wool blend sock yarn that I picked up in Denmark. they are a modified version of the booties in Knitting for Baby.

Two-tone booties

Dang! my whole entry just got deleted, now I have to reconstruct it.
I'm making the "stay on booties" from "Knitting for Baby". I have made a couple modifications to the pattern that make me much happier with it. In particular the is a weird pointy toe thing that happens that I've tried to fix. Instead of k2tog at the beginning of each row while making the toe, I'm using: k2tog k5 ssk, knit back plain. This make the pointy toe thing much less prominent. I'll try to remember to get some pictures taken next tuesday if Karrie and I remember.
I'm also making these ones as two-tones to match the pinwheel cloche I made out of "Knitting for Baby".

Slow start

Well, we are off to a slow start. Not too many people interested, but it will still be fun. I dont actually have any members to officially add, but my friend in my knitting circle was working on a bootie, so i am forcibly adding her.

There have been a few interested parties in the knitter's review forums. Send me your blog address (or just leave a comment) and i will add your name to the list.
