I love knitting baby booties. Especially these made out of angora. They are just toooooo darn cute. I made them this weekend with the intention of giving to the expecting parents last night, but started feeling weird about gifting them since I was unsure about the gender of the wee one. Especially since Paul insisted they were pink. I bought the yarn thinking it was more of a neutral, peachy tone


I found out last night that they're 85% sure its going to be a girl. I should have brought them. The baby is due in four days. I may have to pop them in the mail.

If you ever want to make gender neutral booties, go to and search on 'suede booties'. They are absolutely adorable!!
The ones you have made are lovely too, I wouldn't mind adult size booties made of angora ;-)

That's the problem - anything that is at all near pink gets labelled as pink when it comes to baby clothes. Which is why I am knitting red baby stuff for my BIL's upcoming baby.

The botties are just adorable. I love doing things like that because they knit up so quickly. I can't say I've ever made booties out of angora. It must be butter soft. Just the thing for baby's feet.
