No Babies Here
But I sure like to knit for them.
After seeing the adorable booties that Julie Frick knit many weeks back, I've been seeking out babies to make a pair for. I took a trip to the library on Monday, dug through my stash for some STR and cast on. They are so quick, easy and C-U-T-E!
Pattern: Classic Cashmere Bootees from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies, by Erika Knight
Yarn: Socks That Rock - I lost the ball band and can't find the color on the Blue Moon site or the Fold. Does anyone recognize it?
Needles: US size 5
Time to make: Less than an hour each
Comments: The only thing I'm not crazy about with this pattern is the seam up the back of the bootie. Since they have a rolled top the seam shows. I guess the thing to do would be to rip out the top 1/2" of the seam and re-sew that bit on the outside of the bootie.
