I spent the last week working on these tiny moccasins for Erica's new baby boy, and they arrived (along with the quilt) right after she gave birth. I'm so excited for her! After I saw her post about this project from The Purl Bee, I knew I had to give it a try. It was my first time using double-pointed needles, and it was so awkward for me! At first. But after a week of practicing, I finally made a pair that didn't look like total crap. This is a wonderful pattern, and the project was such a good learning experience. I learned how to pick up stitches (not as hard as I thought it would be) and do a Kitchener stitch (way harder than I thought it would be). I'm glad I've got these skills in my repertoire now because I have the feeling that more of my friends are going to start having kids soon, and I can make these ahead of time for the perfect baby gift.
