I have knitted a lot of baby hats so I decided it was time to learn to make booties. I recently found an easy pattern through the website Ravelry. These booties are real quick to make. You use size US 5 needles and Baby Sport yarn. I don't know what baby sport yarn is I just used some yarn I had in my "stash".
To knit these booties, you just need to knit (K)
purl (P) knit 2 together (K2 tog) and purl 2 together (P2 tog). I had not purled 2 together, so you could say I learned a new stitch.

yarn called "Baby Alpaca Grande" this was a really soft yarn and the needles were a smooth bamboo I then to go purchase a cable hook. Using these needles and this soft yarn I felt like I was really knitting. It really didn't take me long to get the hang of cabling it was really quite easy. Here is what I created. Since I took this class, I have been "enrolling" in classes on Craftsy so I can keep exploring new knitting techniques.
