I took a little break from my other numerous projects this week to do some baby knitting.
Pst. Is it just me, or does the hat seem small to you?
I must admit this was my first time knitting baby booties, and I was a little intimidated!
You knit them flat, and anything knit flat and seemed up afterward makes me a little nervous. I'm never quite sure I believe that it'll all work out in the end, you know?
Anyway, I started by knitting 5" of garter
Then you pick up 30 stitches along one of the long edges, knit a few rows, and start knitting the 10 sitches in the center
There's some finicky stuff here that I'm repressing, but trust me, if you just take it a step at a time it'll work out like magic.
Once you've done the little instep, you fold it all up and graft it together (that becomes the sole of the foot. ). After that you fold down the flap and seem up the back.
It's actually kinda clever and fun once you get over weaving in all those lose ends.
