ugg boots knitted

whats a girl to do with a ball of Rowan Plaid?? rowan plaid mittens of course!   i found these while searching for some chunky knit patterns, yay!!   go alison!

oh my god oh my god!   can you believe this little baby boot??!   i was so excited about the pattern that it only took two sit-downs to finish one boot… adorable!   the day i printed the pattern off the web, i ran to the LYS to get the yarn…
KNIT BABY “UGG” BOOTIES

**   yay!   i forget exactly where i found the link to this craftster.org thread, but i’m so glad!!   these baby booties are delicious!   my bf’s sister is gonna die when i give them to her daughter Zoe… after i finish the second one   ;-)

** the yarn is: Berroco Suede and Plush… the pattern called for two colors of Suede, but at $9.50 a ball, i decided to do it all in one color…  

** only problem i had with the pattern:   it specified two sizes, one knit with US 4 & 5 for a 3-6 month old, the other knit with US 5 & 6 for a 6-12 month old… i had no US 4 or 5 needles, so i decided to go with US 3 needles for the whole bootie… my gauge came out smaller than the called for gauge, yet my bootie is about the size for a 1 yr old!!   well, i guess the 1 yr old will get the booties and the newborn will get the cap i made last week   ;-)

the sole of the bootie… if i made these again, i’d do crochet for the sole and knit the top part…

AND the Hallowig knit along prize has been awarded!!   click here to see the winning Hallowig and what that knitter will receive for being so popular   ;-)   stacey and i had so much fun hosting the along, thanks to everyone who posted their progress and finished photos…

    I did these too – for a newborn, unfortunately they came out the size for a newborn ELEPHANT! I never gave them and they just sit there- what a shame. I’ll have to try again with 1′s or something. Glad to know someone else had the same problem.

    Do you mind sending me the Ugg Baby Bootie pattern? The DIY link is not working.

    Many thanks,

    Jill
