Bitty baby booties -- free pattern that took blogger 30 mins. to knit (see notes about how she knit them backwards and sewed them inside out, which hid the seams and made the shape more rounded than original).
"Small and sweet, these make the perfect gift for any new parents. Who says babies need to be dressed in lemon yellow and pastels! These booties are a quick knit and make a good introduction to more complex shaping for the new knitter."
