Oh Boy, Baby Booties!

 Are these not the cutest things ever!?  I think they look like little baby uggs.
 These were made for a cousin who was having her fist baby, a little boy.  They live in Utah, where winters are cold, so I'm hoping these will help to keep the little ones' feet super warm.

This was my first attempt at a baby shoe, and overall it went pretty well.  I learned a few new tricks on this pattern.  I followed some modifications by a fellow knitter (link found below), so that each bootie was knit in a single piece and then grafted - which is the new technique I learned.  Finally learned to do the Kitchener Stitch.  I was a little nervous at first, but thanks to the many videos on YouTube, it was so easy.

Overall, I am super pleased with these.  Super cute, really easy to construct, and super fast.
