Back to the needles - a sweet and simple bootie pattern

I've had this quick and super simple pattern for baby booties bookmarked for quite a while, and finally took some time to get started on them. I plan to make a pair for a few friends that are expecting and eventually some to donate - the pattern really does live up to the 1 hour promise, even though I did make several modifications to get the size where I wanted it. I saw in the comments that these knitted up small, and apparently I was knitting even more tightly. If you're interested in exactly the pattern I used, let me know and I'd be happy to share.

I think this will become a go to pattern for me. What are your favorite things to knit up for the sweet babies in your life?

Cute Booties. I just got re-"hooked" on Crochet after about 20 years! It's not like riding a bike. My tension is off and I'm not so good at counting anymore for some reason. But I am inspired to make a soft blanket for my grandbaby to be. I'm starting with a beginner pattern by Bernat called Peek-a-boo blanket. After re-honing my skills, I plan to move toward a more difficult (for me) cable pattern
