These are booties for my friend's new nephew. Now, you know I jump at the chance to make baby stuff. I don't even have to know the baby.
In fact, sometimes I just walk up to random pregnant women on the street and ask them if I can knit them something. Unless it's a blanket. I don't do baby blankets.
These are knit from Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere, which is some of my favorite yarn for babies, and my mom's vinatge Susan Bates aluminium needles. I have to tell you, though, after Tulip is finished, I am DONE knitting with cotton. Forever. Well, maybe until next summer.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post about knitting with cotton and my crazy gauge.
