Seriously, The Cutest Baby Booties Ever

After going to the doctor on Monday, I have felt marginally better. Oh yes, thank you the sinuses are definitely better. However, there is the small problem of the medication that has a somewhat undesirable effect on my inner workings. But we will not get into that. We will discuss, however, my deep and emotional love towards Debbie Bliss for creating just the cutest darn pattern for baby booties. This particular pattern is from the Quick Knits book but is modified the Knitty, Vintage and Rosy way.

How you may ask? Well I didn't have any Debbie Bliss yarn in stock so I used a beautiful Baby Alpaca I did have in stock. The little problem was it was a bit thicker than the pattern calls for and they came out bigger than they were suppose to. So in my crafty (ha) sort of way I decided to felt them. That is the result. I just love them. I really cannot capture their utter cuteness on my super yucky camera. But they are adorable.

I also finished the Mason Dixon Bib. Simple. Fast. Cute. With a flowery little button for the closure. These little knitted bits will be given to my nephew's new baby. Her name is Madison and she has rosy cheeks like her Auntie. Yes, I know technically I am her great Aunt but we are not mentioning that fact around here.

And the slow progress of my sock knitting. Between the baby items and the ripple blanket, these hands can only do so much ;)
Thank you so very much ladies for your kind words while I was ill. It does seem there is a general problem worldwide with mummy having any kind of down time. Here I thought I was the only one with these "superpowers".

Brilliant of you to felt them! They are beautiful and make me wish that I knew more about knitting than the very simplest things. The bib is great, too.

Feel better, friend, I know all too well the effects which you discuss. Take care!

I love the booties - I made a cute pair from the same book for my daughter when she was a baby. Gorgeous.

They are soooo cute.
Love the wool you're using to knit your socks too.
Glad you're feeling a bit better.

I love the felted baby booties. I've only felted one project, the FiberTrends felted clogs, and loved doing it. It's so much fun to see the change.
I wish I had 10 hands so I could finish knitting the 5 projects I have going at once. Love the sock yarn. I just finished a pair so time to start

Those bootees are so cute. I wish I had a little one to make them for - does the pattern go up to cover 8 and 6 year olds?! Such gorgeousness!
