Hey, I can do It!

 Lucy has her paws full now that the babies are on the move. 
The have tiny teeth and they wrestle one another playfully. 
She is the sweetest cat. I wish I knew someone who wanted a wonderful cat........
do you?? 

Since you ALL and I mean ALL of you who commented gave me permission to switch knit gears, I did.
I'm finishing the second Baby Bootie in
Ellen Lynch's Pattern:
No Muss No Fuss Seamless Baby Booties. 

(they really are no muss no fuss.)

I would have been uninterested had I read ahead and saw I had to use two circulars.  See there is a good part to some of us who just cast on without reading the whole pattern....

I am delighted that I can knit on two circs.  Ellen's pattern in very easy to understand.  (free on Ravelry too!)
I accidentally used two different colored circ needles and it helps me keep track of which side I'm knitting on. 
As long as I use the same color needle on each side, I'm good. 

All in all a very good knit weekend!

Cute, cute kitties, and a very cute little blue booties!

I think using two circular needles is the way to go! Once I learned to use them on socks, I never went back to double-pointed needles.

I use two circulars on all my sock (and bootie) knitting. Using two different color needles is a smart way to learn the technique. The finished bootie is cute as is the photo of the kitten getting a bath.

Gosh those are cute. Surely some of these summer babies on the way want booties too?! You know... on the off chance I knit again before then?

Wish I could have a cat. Lucy looks like my kinda' girl.

What an adorable little baby bootie! I would love to have a new Miss Lucy Lou - but neither Abby nor JB would like it very much - so, I'll have to pass. g

Very cute! These look like a variation to the Christine's Stay on Baby Booties. I knit those on a set of 5 dpns. Glad you mastered the 2 circ method. Love the kitty pics. Keep 'em coming!
