The release of this pattern is an announcement to my beloved knitting community: my husband and I are expecting our first child.

This is a whole new step in our lives, and what is more fitting than for a new step, than something to take that step in. Albeit, not something for us, this new pattern is for a pair of newborn baby booties.

The design was born from having nothing but 4mm needles and a fingering weight yarn with me, whilst away celebrating our first wedding anniversary. I guess we will have to get used to being creatively resourceful!
