Crochet- baby booties

I wanted to share some recent crochet projects I’ve been working on.

ImageI hadn’t used fingering weight yarn before and I have an order for those amazing crocodile stitch booties you’ve probably seen floating around the interwebs.  I thought I’d better practice, so that I was sure I had the right size hooks and everything.  I worked on these while waiting for the fancy yarn to come. (I had to order it because my local yarn shops don’t carry it.)

ImageI stopped after just a couple rows of crocodile stitches, but everything worked out well!  And, my yarn came, so I have been working on the real booties.

ImageThe yarn is pretty cool, but it’s a little tricky to work with.  It doesn’t unravel well at all, if you have to unpick any stitches.  It’s very soft and kind of fuzzy, but still very thin.  The variegated colorway is amazing!  It’s a little tricky, also, to start at the right point on the yarn to make sure the two shoes match up.

ImageThis pair is 6-12 month size.  I have one shoe of 0-6 month size complete (from the same yarn, but starting at a different color, so they look completely different).  These puppies do NOT whip up very quickly, for sure, but they are worth the work in the end.  I love them and I will definitely making some for my own baby girl, that’s for certain.  Now, to figure out what color.
