When I went home and Christmas my sister told me that she and her partner are going to be mommies in March. I'm thrilled to finally become an uncle. So I came home and started to knit. I made these booties using three plies of recycled lace-weight cashmere that I bought on ebay. I used size 2 double points and a pattern I found online called "Christine's Baby Booties." The color is a bright lilac. The picture looks too blue and too dark on my monitor. I also made a baby blanket in the same color using Mission Falls 1824 superwash. I used a cables and lace pattern that was fun to work. The lacework pulls the cables out of vertical giving it an overall zig-zag look. I'll post a picture when I get it blocked.
