I finished these booties (my first pair) a couple of weeks ago and I'm finally posting a picture.
These were gifted to my best friend (and her baby Joshua) while we were on vacation in Florida.
I'm pretty happy with the way these turned out. I need a little more practice picking up stitches, but these were easy to make and only took a couple of hours each. I got the pattern from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies. There are a couple of other things in the book that might be cute for my new nieces/nephews (both of my sisters-in-law are pregnant, but it's too early to tell if there will be boys or girls).
In other knitting news, I'm almost finished with the leg of the sock (again) and this time it fits. I need to figure out the short row heel I want to do but hopefully I'll have a finished sock this week. I'm also still working on the Irish Hiking scarf slowly. I'm getting close to finishing the second ball of yarn, so I should be getting close to the halfway point.
