My WIP for today is the Baktus Scarf for my Aunt which I've done in Lion Brand Amazing. The colorway is Olive Medley and I'm loving the way this is turning out. It looks like I'll be using just over a skein (147 yards) for this.
I actually started a set of fingerless gloves last night for another family member but there isn't enough of them to show really.
I took a day break from gift knitting to make these. I was going through some of my stash and found a small ball of pink yarn. There was so little of it that I started to toss it but that stash-hoarding voice inside my head said.. "No. Make a baby hat". I started the hat then took it down and did these booties. Now, I have no idea who they are going to but man did I need that time away from my gifts !
The pattern is Baby Booties by Michelle of Ooo Baby Knits. An easy-peasy pattern that can be made in less than a day. I modified them a bit. The pattern calls for more garter starting at about the ankle but I only did the garter stitch on the bottom.
The yarn is Bernat is Baby Softee in Pink Marl. I used a size 2 needle.
Well. I'm off to visit blogs. Enjoy Your Day !
