Before our holidays I stopped in at Walmart to pick up some snacks for our trip and meandered over to the yarn aisle. I don't know why I go look so often. Walmart's selection is not spectacular, and it really seems like they never restock the things that are sold out. However, I went to look and found some pretty cheap self striping yarn as well as a ball of blue baby soft yarn on clearance.
I have taken a bit of a shine to knitting baby things. They are so small and knit up quite quickly. Not that I have diversified much, but I decided that with the self striping yarn I would make a hat. I knitted it, and was so happy with the way it turned out, I thought I would try to make some matching booties. I think they are adorable. I didn't know how they would turn out, being that the stripes in the yarn are a set width, and I didn't know how the pattern would work with booties, but I think it worked out quite well. They are so tiny! Hehe. I don't know who I will give them to, but I do know enough people who either are having babies, or probably will soon, that I am sure I can use it as a gift for someone in the next few months. I still have some of the self striping yarn left, and had thought about making some little baby mitts to go with it, but I'm not sure yet.
