Baby Steps

We're expecting news of a new addition to our extended family sometime over the next few weeks, so in anticipation of the event, I knitted these on Sunday. Aren't they adorable?! I raided my stash and found one skein of Dale Babyull, a fingering weight wool with a beautiful soft texture. Following "Ruth's Perfect Baby Booties" pattern from The Knitnook and using a size 2.5mm needle, I cast on and created these cuties in a matter of hours.

Now, when the call comes, all I have to do is thread some blue or pink ribbon through the eyelet holes below the cuff and they're ready for their new owner.

It's always great to have the excuse to knit for a baby.

They're beautiful! And I'm sure they'll be even cuter with the ribbon. Thanks for sharing the link; lots of babies are born to teachers at my school.

Very pretty, and they look warm and soft too.
