Pom Pom Booties

I haven't knit or crochet anything in what feels like ages so when my friend invited me to her baby shower last week, I decided I'd make her a present! I knew straight away that I wanted to make a pair of baby booties. I'd never made any before but I'd visited a little market the previous weekend and I'd seen a pair for sale and I knew I wanted to have a go at recreating them. As per ususal though I put off getting started on them, so I spent a glorious day the Saturday before the shower on the sofa, watching films with the dogs while Adam was at work. It was bliss!



Part of the reason it took me a while to get started was because I just couldn't find a pattern that I liked. I'm not very good at seaming when knitting, so it had to be made in one piece. I searched Ravelry but the knitting patterns I saw looked a bit too complicated, or didn't have the right "look" I wanted. I decided to try crochet patterns, but again, I couldn't find quite what I was looking for. In the end, I found the Blue Whale pattern by Croby Patterns on Pinterest. I ended up using this pattern for the foot of the boot, following it up to round 5 and then I picked up the 27 remaining stitches and knitted the cuff in a k2p2 pattern for 22 rounds, turning it down and then sewing a pom pom onto each shoe. I'm so, so happy with how these turned out, and they were so quick, easy and used so little yarn; I'm already planning on making another pair or two to have on hand for baby gifts!
