Knit Booties for a Baby Boy

My new nephew was born on Wednesday. My brother and sister-in-law did not find out the gender prior to the birth, so I couldn't make anything for the baby until afterwards.

I have found a few possibilities for some projects, but I wanted to give him something right away. I knit up this cute pair of booties. They lace up with a ribbon, just like tennis shoes, so they are not too pansy looking.

I found the pattern for these in Leisure Arts #75019, Baby Booties to Knit and Crochet
by Leisure Arts. I've had the booklet for 10 years. 
I think I made a few pairs of booties over the years, but this was the first time I used this pattern. They are cute, but they knit up bigger than what I expected. I can't wait to see them on little Zachary.
You can see more details for these booties and more of my projects on my Ravelry projects list.
