Little Knitting

Not too much knitting going on with the bigger projects. They're on hold for now - too hot!

Finished those Little Kid Socks and they are really easy to knit up. The only thing I changed was to slip the first stitch of each row. The pink pair was without slipping and the seaming is not great, especially the back part. The varigated pair came out better, but seaming that back heel needs to be neater. Perhaps with a fluffy yarn the seams would be hidden or maybe omit the bind off and place the back parts on holders to weave in later?
Or maybe my seaming skills will improve :)

AND - I found another pattern!

Bernat's Organic Cotton Knit Booties

You have to sign in / register to access their free patterns.

Another two needle quicky, but I am thinking that the opening might be too loose to stay on.
Maybe go down a needle size for the cuff. Already on my next pair, so I'll be experimenting - again :)

Thanks for all the compliments! Keeps me knitting and knitting for charity!

I made similar booties (the pink Bernat ones) for my daughter over 20 years ago. I used natural white yarn, and I used a crochet band to bind a bow to hold them on baby's feet. I love simple patterns.

I'm signing up for Bernat's free patterns :) Do you have an account for Lion Brand? They have a nice collection, too :) The booties are just too cute!
