Baby Booties

I made the cutest little baby booties today! I got off work early this afternoon since there were an abundance of people working today. I left work around 1, picked up around the house, and sat down to check my facebook and email. I came across this pattern I had saved some time last year on crocheted baby booties. Supposedly it only takes 30 minutes to make both, so I decided to give it a try.

I've never really crocheted before, except one time. I tried to crochet the most complicated hat on earth with absolutely no knowledge on how to crochet at all. I figured since I knew how to knit, crocheting would be super easy to pick up. Well, the hat ended up being 10 sizes wider than my head. This was after I took it out and re-crocheted it about, no exaggeration, 20 times. Needless to say, I came to the conclusion that I was much better at knitting.

However, these little booties were SO cute that I had to give them a try. They ended up being so easy I cannot believe I actually did it! It definitely did not take me 30 minutes, since I'm not experienced at all in crocheting and did not remember how to double crochet and slip stitch. After about an hour, which isn't too bad, I completed these little darling shoes!!

Aren't they so cute?! I won't be able to use these particular ones because the yarn is not very soft. I'm going to get some soft baby yarn and start making these for all the new moms I know. They are quick, easy, and make perfect gifts for new moms! I just love 'em!
