Baby booties

Whenever a new baby is born in our family or circle of friends, my mom knits something for the new arrival. Sometimes it’s a tiny sweater or a hat, but usually it’s a pair of baby booties.

A couple of my friends had a baby boy earlier this summer, so I thought I would continue the tradition.

(Christine’s stay-on baby booties, with a few modifications: a few extra stitches and rows since it won’t be cold enough for the recipient to need these for a few months yet, and I want them to still fit by then, and 2×2 twisted rib cuffs instead of rolled ones because I like them better; here are mine on ravelry.)

Baby things make wonderful projects because they’re so small that they seem to fly right off the needles. Especially in the summer, when you really don’t want a half-finished sweater or blanket sitting on your lap as you knit, working on a pair of booties is great. Plus, they’re just so cute!
