|Welcome to the world, baby C|
Of course I have a few baby knits for her: The Hello Baby Cardigan, and The Gigantic Pink Blanket have been done for a while now. But the second I heard the news (I got a text message at 5:30 am) I got the hankering to make some little booties too. It may have had something to do with the fact that my brother sent me a picture of her tiny little naked feet.
After a bit of rummaging though ravelry and stash, I decided to use some Koigu Premium Palette (purchased for my BKQ) to make the Saartjes booties.
Even though that makes them look kind of like a shocked Homer Simpson when you turn it upside down.
Oh yeah, that's right: I learned how to graft garter stitch.
Helluva lot better than the slipper I made for myself!!
|Where I was too lazy to even look up HOW to graft garter stitch.|
It actually turned out to be much easier than I had expected. Easier, in my opinion, than stockinette kitchner, which is very interesting since I must have done "regular" kitchner at least 100 times more than I have done it on garter.
Also, I just want to say how much I appreciate having a knitting blog. It means that when I want to jump on my facebook and shout out to the world, "I can kitchner on garter!!!" I no longer have to deal with the inevitable "what?" "huh?"s and instead can just post it here. You know, for the people who know what the hell I'm talking about.
One bootie down.
