FO: Green River

Hey lookit- two posts in two days! And now with actual knitting content! We already know how much I enjoy knitting for friends, and for babies, and for friends' babies. So it shouldn't come as any kind of a shock that my latest FO was knit for my friend Annie's most special and adorable baby boy.

Green River
Pattern: Magic Slippers by Caroline Dlugy-Hegwer (Ravlink)
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM (100% Merino Wool) in 514 - less than one skein
Needles: US2

I've had my eye on this pattern for a while, because they're so cute and wee, and because it seemed like such a great way to use up some sock yarn. I was completely sold after seeing MJ's! (Clearly, these beg to be photographed in trees!)

These little things really are magic...and fun to knit- no seaming whatsoever! All you need is a little bit of sock yarn and some DPNs (or your circular knitting needles of choice) and you end up with the cutest pair of booties you've ever seen! The only thing cuter? The booties being modeled by perfectly nom-able baby feets!

Aah, baby feet...something tells me I should knit another pair! :)

Those are adorable, and I LOVE the colors you chose. There is no way they will stay on baby feet more than .3 seconds though. I wonder if they could be sized up to be kid slippers...

Super cute! Not taking any chances of not getting this posted before the birth, huh? ;)

MJ said...

Those *are* cute, aren't they? Love your colors, too.

Wondering when Bean will show up so I can put the ones I made on her teeny toes....

those look absolutely cute!! I finally decided to try them for myself, this being the first things I've tried remotely close to socks... And I actually found it kind of difficult on dpn... wish mine looked as fantastic as yours... now to rest my hands before starting the second one.

I'm so glad to see those on a real live baby! I knitted a pair for my soon to be born niece and I worried about their size. Super cute! Thanks again Shannon for the pattern.
