I'm knitting again and I need some help. :)

(Picture borrowed from Ravelry)
I need help from my knitting friends. I tried these booties yesterday, for a new baby boy that's coming soon, and they were just way too big for a newborn. Do you guys know of a pattern that is similar to this that works better for newborn feet? I would also like something that is seamed because I'm sooo slow with DPNs or majic loop. Got any ideas? Thanks friends! xo, Sam

I had that happen and I threaded a ribbon through the ankle area and could tie them on until baby could grow into them. Less likely to lose them in the grocery store that way too.

I've knitted these a few times and they come out smaller.

I love these- http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/classic-cashmere-bootees They are seamed, come in several sizes and seemed to fit my babies pretty well. Down side- you have to buy the book. But, every pattern in the book is adorable. And, heck, I'd be willing to mail it to you and let you borrow it for a while.

I've knit this pattern a few times and it's definitely small enough for newborns.

You can use a smaller yarn, or change the needle size, some times that works for me, I tend to be one to play around with a pattern until it's what I want. Those are cute booties, you can crochet a chain for the ankle also...

I started reading your blog about 6 months ago and I was under the impression that you were from a mid-western state. (Don't ask me why.) I was pleased to learn that you are from Alabama as I am from the SE region of the state. My first grand child (a girl) was born in November and she lives in the Birmingham area. I enjoyed seeing the car seat cover that you made. I work full time plus and find very little time to sew. My daughter and I are grabbing moments when we can to work on our baby's christening gown. You inspire me with what all you are able to do!
