It seems like every year I become obsessed with a different craft. Last winter it was crocheting scarves. I literally had no room left in my closet because I made so many scarves. I made them to give as gifts, to give to charity, and of course a bunch to keep for myself (I do live in Chicago after all… I’m gonna need as many scarves as I can get!).
Not to worry though! I now have a brand new obsession for Winter 2011-2012: knitting baby booties! I’m not really sure where this obsession came from. I don’t have any kids of my own and don’t know that many babies, but I just think it’s so fun to make teeny tiny shoes! I recently bought this book, A Dozen Darling Baby Booties, and have been busily knitting booties ever since! I’ve made my way through 4 of the 12 patterns already and I’m absolutely in love with the little girl booties with the pink pom poms dangling off the ankles. Those are definitely my favorite so far.
If you’re in the market for baby bootie knitting patterns — whether you have a little one of your own or not; we won’t judge! — I’d highly recommend this book. You can buy a copy of A Dozen Darling Baby Booties from CutRateCrafts for less than seven bucks!
Since I know I’m probably going to finish all of the patterns in the book well before New Year’s — I’m in a knitting frenzy over here! — I also started poking around the Internet looking for some other patterns to try. After all, there will still be a lot of winter left once I finish with the patterns in the book and I’m pretty sure my obsession will take me well through April. I just love knitting these little booties so much! So, here are some of the other fun baby bootie patterns I found online.
Which of these baby booties is your favorite? Would you make any of these?
