It's the new crack - baby booties!
Almost everyone I know is pregnant and due within the next few weeks. I hadn't started knitting anything before last night and was all worked up because I don't have any real plans. Then I found this.... The Cutest Baby Booties Ever. The pattern is located at Saarti Knits - it's over in the sidebar, you have to click on the English version (unless you speak Danish).
I made the bootie with leftover sock yarn. I am amazed at how fast this little puppy went. I knit the majority of it last night (while watching a subtitled movie!) and just finished up the straps this morning while the girls had breakfast. I need to sew the seams tonight when I get home and sew on the buttons, but I know just what buttons I'll use. The pattern calls for 2 colors, but I've used self striping sock yarn and I really like the effect. I think it makes for a more unique looking bootie. The challenge of course will be to see if I can get the 2nd bootie to match colorwise.
At this rate, I can use up a lot of leftover sock yarn and make a ton of booties for my friends. This pattern truely is the new crack!
