Then I decided I wanted to learn to cable knit. As I was looking for a simple pattern to try out I came across these cable knit baby booties on Ravelry. So of course I had to make some to go with the stocking cap! What else would you expect?!
I have to admit, I cruised until I reached the cable part. Then it was like, "Huh? What? I leave some stitches unworked? What do I do with them? Turn before I reach the end of a row, what?" My true colors as a beginner knitter really showed. So I looked online for basic instructions on how to knit a cable. I found some on Knitting for Dummies.
All that's left is to sew my tag onto them, then they can be delivered to their new home. The baby is not due for a few more months so I'm ahead of the game on this one!
(Sorry the pics aren't better. The weather in my part of the world just hasn't been cooperating this week!)
