Aren’t they SOOO cute?!!
I’ve already gotten 3 requests to knit these babies up in assorted colors for people at my work…I even got to try them on a real live baby, and they fit just perfect! (she was about 2.5 months)
But the real reason I’m knitting up little baby booties is to begin our Loom Knitter’s Clique “Online Classes Club”! These will be held at the Gettin’ It Pegged Chat Clique, that you can join here. This first class (series, I’m thinking) will be free!…and most thereafter, for that matter. ;)
The one I used on the booties above is from Decor Accents and can be found here. But any fine gauge loom will do.
I would like to get a feeling for how many people would be interested in joining this project class in April…could you please leave a comment on this post to let me know? Thanks so much! This should be a fun looming endeavor! :)
PS: EDIT!! To join the class, just click on the link above to join the Gettin’ It Pegged…loom knitter’s chat clique, which was started just for the purpose of holding classes…and occasionally contests, etc! ;)
Also, I’ve gotten a lot of requests about whether or not it’s okay to use an Extra Fine Gauge loom for these little cuties…the answer is…Of Course! :) You just need to do a little swatch and adjust the pattern as necessary…these knitted up at 11 stitches for every 2 inches using #4 Cotton Ease by Lion Brand yarn.
Also, this project is knit in a flat panel, so the loom just needs to have at least 40 pegs…more as needed for EFG looms ;)
And Everyone…Thanks a Bunch for your wonderful comments, and willingness to loom along with me…Stay tuned for more details as I work out all the kinks in the process…and don’t forget to comment here so I can keep a good count…Thanks!!!
PPS: EDIT 10/01/09: I’ve gotten so many responses to this particular post about the booties from folks that haven’t had a chance to read the other posts about the creation of these little babies…particularly about the pattern being available for sale in the Peggin’ Pages here…just scroll down until you see them. ;) Enjoy!
