FO-Converse Booties
I also posted this in the Christmas KAL. I made these for my cousin who is having a baby right around Christmas. She is having a boy. She wanted something different than the usual baby things than she was going to receive at her baby shower so I knitted her these. She is crocheting her own baby blanket so I that's why I didn't do a blanket. I am happy with the way it came out. If after I do all my other gifts and I have time I may do a sweater later on.

I used berroco comfort and for the converse star I used a fleece fabric that had a star pattern on it and used a quarter to cut out the right size.

Thanks. There was No way was I going to cut out white fabric and then star shape and sew the 2 together. It would look terrible. And boy is it HARD to find Star fabric in the right color and right shape. But joann's had it in the fleece which I felt was perfect for the pattern. The fleece also comes in pink for girls.
