Like Crack for Knitters

Hi. My name is Jess and I'm addicted to knitting baby booties. Maybe it's the instant gratification, maybe it's the shear cuteness of it all, I don't know. I just know I need more. This is the super duper stay on baby bootie from Knitting for Baby. I've knit it enough times that I don't need to look at the pattern anymore. Just cast on and go. These were knit with some Koigu (two strands) from my stash. I had enough left over to make another pair, but I decided to branch out and make an EZ Baby Surprise Hat. Unfortunately the hat is too big for Lily, so I have to wait until Addie gets home from her time at Grandma and Grandpa's to get a picture taken. Had I used a single strand for the hat, I think it would have been the perfect size. However, I find EZ's vagueness just a little too vague when it comes to choosing the right yarn. I think I need to find myself a copy of The Knitters Book of Yarn to study while reading EZ. I think it's because she lists everything in ounces or in her own brands of yarn that I have trouble converting it to other brands. Just gimme some yardage lady! :)
