I'm almost 3 months along now, and our baby is due the first week in December...I've been looking all over the internet for a free baby booties pattern that seems more modern...any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

All of those are really sweet! I especially love the "Mary Jane" style. I was really looking into making these:

But I have no idea where I could get the yarn from...was really hoping to possible either order online or find a store close by...and I can't. Any ideas on that? Or perhaps on a yarn that would work just as well? I'm itching to make SOMETHING for baby...and I really want to make these (or something similar) just need the right yarn!

And miss_molly, congrats on the grandchild on the way! You must be very excited! :)

You don't need to use the suggested yarn, but you do want to find something the same gauge.

According to this site it's a bulky ribbon yarn. If you use another yarn it will look a little different though, but not necessarily bad. ;)
