Little bits

I've been knitting in fits and starts these days, snatching bits of time where I can to work on small projects. I had plenty of yarn left from the February baby sweater so I decided to knit this pattern that I've been eyeing for ages. These booties are a fast, easy knit. Oh, so cute when done, too!

Saartje's dreamy booties


I have no idea if they will actually stay on a wiggly baby's feet, but I suppose that's not my problem! Cute is what counts, right?

I also wanted to send a little thank-you to Jen for sharing her Jitterbug sock yarn. There were still plenty of leftovers after I finished the toe of my sock, so I decided to knit a wee one as my gift.

I have to confess that I ordered a second keychain for myself. Not at all practical, but again, cute gets the nod. Here's to some cute, fun, makes-you-smile projects on your needles!

Both knits are super cute!

I can't wait to find out the gender of my friend's baby so I can start knitting all the cute baby clothes.
