 Why Knitters get Pregnant

Who wouldn't want to make a pair of these. i inherited some regia sock yarn from my spectacular friend jess (plug: check out her purses) and found this pattern via another post. i used #2 addis for lack of 1s (my 0s are 'holding' a jaywalker sock with serious seconditis) and they came together great. i wanted to make daddy camo socks to match, but he said he would prefer a beanie and i know my man, he will never put on a pair of handknit socks, though it was a nice momentary fantasy. now i will cast on for pair #2 for bean #2. they are so quick and fun i am glad i have to make 2 pairs.

those are the cutest booties! a few of my friends are having babies this year and i would like to give them a try - are they very hard? sadly i'm a beginner knitter and scarves are all i seem to be able to master :)

hi tj, if you click on the link to the pattern you will get rudimentary intructions. they are fairly simple but require your knowledge of :
a)picking up stitches at the edge,
b)how to short row. if the intructions seem indecipherable try, so many great videos are available. if it still seems hard, leave a message at my blog and i will try to help. glad you want to try some new things!
