I carried on knitting yesterday and really stretched myself. I had to learn lots of new techniques to be able to make these booties. I did this with the help of Goggle, which helped me locate lots of knitting videos on youtube and other how to knit pages.
Although these booties are cute, I think they may end up being for a doll instead of a newborn, they seem REALLY tiny. If they are baby size and I have a boy, there is no panic as I have lots of pregnant friends at the moment, so someone will get a cute (if totally impractical) present!
