When you knit baby's booties, it is important to check your gauge or tension. This means you knit a test square with the selected needles and yarn then count the number of stitches and rows in a measured area of this test test piece. This is important since everyone tends to knit differently. I tend to knit looser than the average (and have fewer stitches than I'm supposed to in my test piece) so if I just made up the pattern as it says, my item ends up being bigger than it's supposed to. I need to use a slightly smaller needle size to get my gauge right. If your gauge shows that you knit tighter than average (more stitches in the square than specified), then you should try a bigger needle size to get your test swatch to have the correct gauge.
With a scarf, bag, or a toy, it probably won't matter much if the item is bigger or smaller than expected. But with baby booties, you do want to be close to right size.
The sweet little booties in the picture to the above right are like mini fur-trimmed ugg boots. The pattern is available for purchase from craftsuprint.

Colors for your booties
Many people like to use the traditional pastel colors when knitting baby's clothing - blue for boys and pink for girls, or white, green, mauve, or lemon for either boys or girls. Another pretty pastel option is to use variegated yarn, which is yarn dyed in different colors (see the yarn on the left).
But don't limit yourself just to pastels. Many other colors including bold, bright primary colors are also very effective for baby booties.
