View Full Version : Lace and Diamond Bootees

Morning! I found this pattern on KnitPicks. Has anyone made these? Or something similar. Do you think they would be difficult for a "newbie"? My neice is having her second baby in September I would love to give her something hand made :XX: :sunny:

One of my first projects was a pair of booties! Go for it, Stony! :thumbsup:

I second that. They look straightforward and what have you got to lose? Those are really cute!

Kelly when you order from KnitPicks is the delivery fairly prompt? I would love to order some stuff today :cheering: (I can tell this is going to be dangerous lol) Thanks!

I guess I need to read better. You can not just order the pattern/yarn. It is in a book of patterns. Oh, well will search for something similar. Any Ideas? Thanks! :sunny:

Why not order the book? The baby won't go away and may need more clothing! (I am such an enabler. :oops: )

well there is that bootie pattern that someone posted on here that i think is ADORABLE but am afraid of cuz i avoid things that require more thought than a seed stitch scarf like the plague. let me see if i can find them cuz they were the first thing that made me think that i could set aside my aversion to patterns!

Yup.. I was afraid of that lol. A little encouragement and my finger just automatically goes to "add to cart" :rollseyes: I have no will power lol.

Knitpicks is pretty fast...If you order early today, I bet you'll have it by the end of the week. :thumbsup:

:cheering: I did it.. ! I know.. it is something simple lol.. but my FIRST KnitPicks order... am I excited? mmmmm hmmmm! YUP! :: :balloons:

lol...i am always putting stuff in my cart there and then not ordering. i would have ordered many times over by now i think if they had the color selection in WOTA as they do in some of the other yarns!

Well I usually like to be able to touch the yarn... I am like that when I buy fabric to quilt too.. there is just something about being able to feel it.. Strange I know! I almost clicked on the Denise needles.. :shock: but I held back! How did I do that? lol

07-19-2005, 10:23 AM
oooooooh i am the fabric department's worst enemy...i can't walk past without touching everything on the outside and if i get sucked in, well then i need to touch it all.

wonder where that comes from...something in childhood i would guess.

You have great will power. I always 'shop around' and buy things I don't really need. When your package comes, you'll see why it's so much fun to order on line. Christmas every day. Uh oh, I need to get off this subject. I'm jonesing for a delivery and I have nothing on order. :(

07-19-2005, 10:33 AM
Yup I am bad.. I am now looking all over the internet trying to find a delivery schedule hehehe.. hmmmm how long will it take for it to come from Ohio.. oh brother I have it bad. (Yay for the internet at work!) :hiding:

the Knitpicks Lace and Diamond bootees calls for? I may or may not order that same pattern, but I'd love to make my next bootee in that color yarn.

Hi Ann :waving: (with no "e" lol) I am hoping that the order comes tomorrow- :cheering: I ordered the book the pattern is in but not yarn that they recommended on the knitpiks site. The color options were not very baby like.. and I really liked the color of the bootees shown in the picture. I will probably buy the yarn local, if you are still interested in the color and brand I would be happy to let you know :sunny: anne .
