WiP It Wednesday: Rockabilly Booties

Rocky-a-billy Baby booties

These were certainly the quickest things I have knit in a while! I started Sunday night, and finished last night... and I didn't knit on Monday. I'm still claiming them as a WiP, however, because I still need to get some ribbon to weave in the eyelet holes. These booties are not for Sprog (our baby), but rather for a swap on Ravelry. I still don't know whether my partner is having a boy or not yet, but I sure hope she is because I keep on making boy things.

The Particulars

Pattern: Shake Your Sockies by Kathie Popadin
Needles: Size 1 Aero dpns
Yarn: Storm Moon Knits Twilight Sock in Rockabilly Blues. This was leftover yarn from when I made Amy's Christmas Socks last year. There is still plenty enough to make another pair or two of these.
Modifications: The only modification I made to the pattern was to add two more rows of ribbing before knitting the eyelet row.

This was an exceptionally easy pattern to follow - and I plan to make another pair for Sprog - I can't wait to dig through my leftover sock yarn stash! (Is it sad that my stash has its own sub-stashes?)

Sub-stashes of yard. I believe it.
I have sub-scraps of fabric.
