One of my current knitting projects. The heel was scary in the beginning (until I put some of those knot-tying skills I learned in Girl Guides to good use); I'm sailing along right now. (Clarification: The picture is the one from knitty.com. I'm knitting my socks in pink and green. Because life is too short NOT to wear pink and green socks.)
Baby booties are even cuter when they come in a set of three. What a great gift this would make. And you could use up scrap yarn too. >> Saartje's Bootees by Saartje de Bruijn, free knitting pattern on Ravelry.
