I've got a skein of Lamb's Pride bulky to use for my charity knitting and it seems like not quite enough for a hat. I thought booties might work. I'm knitting for children in afghanistan. Otherwise I'll try a newborn hat.

There's one in Stitch 'N Bitch Nation -- One Hour Baby Booties or something like that. They knit up fast and cute.

I made this primarily for bulky yarn...I knit at a slightly smaller needle shape than is usually suggested for the bulky yarn, so they have a more defined shape.<br><br><a href="http://www.fabulousyarn.com/babyalpaca/ba_booties_3up200.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.fabulousyarn.com/babyalpa...ies_3up200.jpg</a><br><br><br>

Thanks! I planned to get the SnB nation book but didn't yet. Judy - those look nice and easy!

I made a bunch of the SnB bulky booties. They were really fun to make (so quick!) but ... they NEVER stay on my baby's feet. I was so bummed. The free pattern above at Fabulous Yarns looks like it might be much more successful at staying on.<br><br>
It is really fun to make baby booties though! My favorite pairs to make were not in bulky yarn, but the pattern was brilliant. They are in a book called "Last Minute Knitted Gifts." No sewing up after the knitting.

The pattern from fabulous yarns knits up really nicely. Haven't tried them on an actual baby yet to tell if they stay on.

I've also made Judy's baby booties - they were *so* cute and *so* easy! I stupidly didn't take a picture before I gave them away, but maybe once the baby is here (he's in utero now), I can get some pics of him wearing them. These were my first booties ever, and I really, really liked the pattern.

The fabulous yarn booties are SWEET!<br><br>
Did anyone order the "free pattern"? Just wondering why the need for all our personal information is it snail mailed or emailed?<br><br>
