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 only thing you need that maybe not everyone has at the moment, is a loom capable of knitting in a fine gauge.
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!
The baby booties are absolutely adorable. Will you only be teaching on a chat, I’m not able to participate because my email is at work and I don’t have time at home in the evening. Will you be teaching it at the Deccor Accents yahoo group?
Those are adorable. It makes me want to have another baby (almost, lol)
those are sooo cute. I have a fine gauge wonderloom will this work? I also have the EFG sock loom. I really would like to try these.
I am in! I am sooooo in!!!!!!! But, I have an EFG….will it still work? I sure hope so b/c those are the sweetest booties I have ever seen in my LIFE! 😀 Seriously! 😛
I love these and would definitely be interested in a class.
These are sooo cute. I would love to take the class depending on when it is. My FG mini wonderloom is ready!
I love these booties. I only have the EFG loom so far and the regular gauge looms. I just ordered the AJAL in the fine gauge and it will be here the last week of April. If you teach this class may I watch or use the EFG to test it out until my fine gauge comes?
Count me in, please
I would love to be counted in the class, and I do have the looms…thanks for posting and offering the class. I LOVE the booties!!
Cutie Patootie Baby Booties!!! I love them. I would like to make some but I have EFG rather than FG. Maybe I could make little ones for the dollies that live around here?
I would love to take the class for these when you offer it.
OMG!! These are just the cutiest (in the words of Noggin TV) little things I’ve ever seen. I just might have to give those a try.
Too cute! My baby’s tootsies are too big for them though ;-( makes me wish they were still that little. Great job!
Hardly can wait ,till class is starting.
Now I am going to make a swatch.
Those are ovary aching cute! hehehe
Count me in!

Yep count me in! This is PERFECT timing as I have to knit a pair (or more) for a friends baby who is due May 15th! Just got the baby blanket done for him. Yep its a boy! Also my sister’s baby #2 is due June 16th!! We don’t know if its a boy or girl yet. So this came at the perfect time as I was just looking at bootie patterns and then saw this announcement so I will be choosing these for the perfect booties for them!! Thanks a million! LOVE all your patterns. I want to buy some very soon (again). Maybe in april. Humm, have to see the budget I guess. Hate that dreded word! LOL
I would love to get in on the class! I am expecting my first grandchild (grandson) in about 4 weeks! Let me know where to sign up. I have the same loom you do.
Oh YES PLEASE!
They are sooooo adorable!
I plan on joining in. These are very cute booties and would love to learn how to make some of these. I am looking forward to the class! 🙂
I love these booties. I saw a similar pattern that is knitted, but I am so slow with knitting needles. I’m really excited about loom knitting these. I have a 9″ extra fine gauge loom, but haven’t used it yet. I guess this is a good opportunity to try it. I’ve applied for membership at the Clique group. Linda
Missed you class, but would really appreciate the pattern if it’s available. Marlene
I want to make the booties for my sister in law… she is due in June. Do you have the pattern.. I just found your site today… almost a year too late for the class. I am new to llom knitting just have the kniffty knitters been working on them for about a month.
I think I have found my hobby.
Please let me know where I can find the fine gauge loom and pattern for your booties.
Most appreciative, Lupe
