Around 1:15 AM last night, I finished the hands down cutest project I have ever knit.
Perhaps it was the late hour, or perhaps it was my biological clock, but when the booties were done I squealed with delight. Yes, I actually squealed.
I don’t think I ever imagined such cuteness existed. I mean look…pom poms!
Kind girl that I am, I brought the booties with me to work today so everyone there could also enjoy the cuteness. The booties are a gift for a recently born girl baby named Lizzie. If she doesn’t like them I am taking them home and displaying them in my room. I hope that’s not strange.
Pattern: Posy Booties
Source: Jaeger JB29
Yarn: Lang Jowell, color 162, hot pink, gifted to me by the lovely Heather for my last birthday
Needles: US 2
Notes: Easy to follow pattern but did take longer than I expected. The finishing is what took the most time. But I am SO pleased with the result. Would knit again and again. In fact, I just might. I could become baby bootie knitter specialist. Now that would be the cutest job ever.

VERY cute indeed! Finishing is definitely the worst with all such tiny super cute baby patterns.
Oh the cuteness! Lucky lucky Lizzie!
Oh, they are so cute. I can see why you needed to squeal 🙂
Oh my goodness those are cute!!!
Those are really cute, I’m going to have to track down a copy of the pattern.
Beautiful – I doubt your friend won’t like them, PLEASE, the are fantastic.
That picture actually caused an uncontrollable “awwwww” here. Very very cute.
Darn! 😉 They are TOO cute.
I think you should hang them on your rear view mirror. That wouldn’t be strange at all.
Those are the cutest booties I have ever seen!! I need to find the pattern and make some happy yellow ones…that one be fun… Lucky Lizzie!!
Erin — I want to have a baby now just so YOU can knit me some booties.
Those are soooo cute! I think the pom pom really makes them super adorable. Many of my friends are having babies so I’m on the look out for a good bootie pattern.
I LOVE these booties. Do they come in adult size 7? They are so adorable that I am actually considering having more kids, just to get a pair.
That is some serious cute! 🙂
Yes, completely cute. LOVE the Lang Jawoll!
i think i am now obsessed with these booties too! too cute! i would *kill for a pair of my own. it wouldn’t take much to modify the pattern to make them a *little bigger… hmmm… :0)
They are ADORABLE. I’m about to go CAPS-LOCK all over them.
Great use of the yarn!
Those are adorable! I love the pom-poms, and I never thought I would be writing that!
You’re right. Booties don’t get any cuter than that! Well…I know what’s up for my next baby project. And don’t worry, I do have more baby showers to knit for. Gah. My friends need to stop having babies.
Those are too stinkin cute! I love them!
