I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for someone I know to get pregnant (it's sure not going to be me!) so I could knit some baby stuff! During one of my yoga classes, I noticed a little bit of a tummy on my yoga teacher. Of course I wasn't going to ask, but one of the other women wasn't scared, and our teacher, Joey, announced that she's pregnant! Immediately I wanted to knit her something for the baby. I was stuck, because I don't have a lot of gender neutral yarn in my stash that isn't super bright or really earth toney. Nothing really fitting for a baby. A couple of weeks ago, Joey mentioned that the baby is a boy and I was like 'YES!' I knew I had some blue cotton lying around waiting to become something! I found the pattern for the booties in one of my baby knitting books, and I used Allison's toddler hat pattern.
I think these booties are so cute!! I hope the baby can wear them for a little bit. I know the hat is a little big, but I figure the brim can be rolled up for a smaller head and also worn when the baby is a toddler. I can't wait to give these to Joey!
