newtoknit, it is SOOOOO easy. It is not knit in the round like a lot of booties/socks are, and the trickiest thing you have to be able to do is pick up stitches, which isn't all that tricky especially if you've watched Amy's videos!!
Give it a try - it's a good instant gratification project and a good one for practising quite a few different skills, and if you make a mistake, no biggie - just try again. I made the one bootie in about 2 hours yesterday.
