So, this is me trying to get back to posting again regularly about my finished knitting (FOs). Even though I have been quiet on that front on here doesn’t mean that I haven’t been knitting like a maniac. I have so many amazing things to show you! But for today, since it is after my bedtime (which is 10pm by the way), here are some booties that I knit for an ex-colleague back in May 2015.
Regular readers of this blog will know that this is my version of Saartjes Bootees that I have knit up several hundred times now.
They are still my favourite gift to knit up for someone that is expecting. I love them especially because they also enable me to knit up some leftover yarn from other projects. This particular pair was knit up in DROPS Muskat.
The other thing I love about these booties is that I can knit them in 2 hours flat. The sewing up takes a little longer, but I can basically whip up 5 pairs of these in a weekend.
And of course they fit perfectly into the little cardboard boxes I make to present them in. The perfect gift!
