It was one of those crazy aunt/knitter projects that I should feel a little silly about, but don't.
Firstly, I've already made 3 pairs of booties for my sister.
Secondly, I decided to use a nice wool/alpaca blend. For a baby.
Whatever, y'all. It's fall and my head is filled with ridiculous plans for really nice yarns and this is soft and a beautiful color and if I need to go visit my sister to hand wash knitted things for her and hold the baby a few months from now, then okay.
Maybe I'm even doing this on purpose.
I mean, I'm not because I'm not that clever but it's a nice bonus.
Anyway, this was a lovely pattern to knit. It's nothing too crazy, but also not too boring. Thank goodness, because I had to make a second one! This was sweet enough that I could happily make a few more pairs of this pattern.
For now, though, I'm going to try out a few more of the patterns in Garter Stitch for Baby. I'm really in a garter stitch mood and I've got quite a bit of this yarn left.
