FO Friday

I know it's not Friday anymore ( it's actually 12 am as I type), but since I haven't gone to bed yet it's still Friday to me. I didn't have time to post earlier today, it was one of those one thing after another days. Then it was GNO and we can't miss that especially when it's ogling over love-struck vampires and werewolves on the big screen. Enough about that here's what I finished this week:
Tracy's(my bff)slippers
I actually finished knitting and felting a while ago, but it took a while for them to dry and then I got doing other stuff and I couldn't decide what color of buttons to do I hope she likes the yellow.
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes worsted
Colorway: Fairy Tale
Needles: US 15

Bootees for Emma
My neighbor just had a baby girl, her 6th child WOW! I feel every baby should have something new even though they are sure to get hand me downs.
Pattern: Saarte's Bootees by Saartje de Bruijn
Yarn: Stash yarn I bought a long time ago and I don't have the label, 
but I'm sure it's pima cotton.
Needles: US 3
This pattern is really easy once you figure it out. If you plan on making them watch this video on youtube for a tutorial on the button holes on the straps it will make the process much nicer than trying to guess by the pics of the tiny bootees.

I've had these booties on my ravelry queue for a long time, 
but I just haven't gotten around to making them. My neighbor just had a baby girl 
so I decided what a good excuse to do some baby knitting.

Yarn: Left-over yarn that I lost the label to. It's pima cotton if I remember right.Sport weight

Socks for the Woman who walked me through life and really let's face still does!
Pattern: Duckies by Samantha Hayes
Yarn: ONline Supersocke 100

I really enjoyed knitting these socks they knitted up so quick.
The best part is look how much yarn is left over.
I guess I'll be knitting some for myself because the colors match my Belfast Hoodie
