A Rite of Passage

I feel somehow that last week I became official. 'Cuz I don't think I could call myself a "knitter," if I hadn't made some baby booties. Really, who do you know that knits or crochets and hasn't made a pair of booties? Don't answer that. I could be wrong.

The booties are from a very simple pattern out of Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas. And, although I have yet to tackle knitting in the round, I did manage an I-cord. Surprisingly satisfying, those I-cords. I want to make them to tie up everything I own! I know that doesn't make sense, just humor my hyperbole.

I was going to wait to give these away and to post about them until after I had tried the bonnet to go with them (this one from Last Minute Knitted Gifts), but patience is SO not one of my virtues. Addy, I'm sorry they make your feet look a little like a Smurf, but I'm sure you'll grow into them.

Eeeeek! I made baby booties! I am such a happy little nerd.

I mean, knitter.

Knitting Nerd (that's better). Happy little knitting nerd.

Addy told me she likes her feet looking like Smurf feet:) And they are sooo precious, just love them and got many compliments on them throughout the day!

Cute booties! I can only knit squares and rectangles.. so my projects have only been scarves and pillows. ;)

Darling! Truly, they are beautiful. I became a knitting nerd earlier this year... so far I've only knitted baby beanie caps.
