Booties With a New Look

Image hosting by Photobucket
I found that a row of "nubbles", as described in the pattern for the Cupcake Hat, makes a nice embellishment to my favorite booties.

Pattern: Michelle's Booties
Size: 1-3lbs (3-5lbs, 6-8lbs)
Yarn: Sport D.K. (WW, WW)
Needle Size: US2 (US5, US7)
CO: 25 (25, 25)
(See Cupcake Hat pattern for how to Make Nubble)
What I Did:
Work garter stitch rows.
Work decreases.
Add a row of nubbles after the decreases, making a nubble every other stitch.
Work four rows of K1, P1 ribbing.
Bind off loosely and sew seams.
Note for ribbing: When I came to a stitch that contained a nubble, I purled on the wrong side and knit on the right side.

Now it's time to sew blankets for The Preemie Project. I spent several hours yesterday cutting out flannel. Today I expect to keep the sewing machine humming all day.
