Back in February 2013 I knitted a few things for a friend from boarding school, she had the most adorable little boy (born very early). I met him last year and he’s absolutely adorable. First off, I made him a pair of booties, using my own pattern.
Even though I don’t knit this pattern much anymore I still love it as a quick and easy knit for a baby gift.
I used some leftover Regia sock yarn, but for the life of me I can’t remember what exact colour description it was.
I do have to say I like the self-striping nature of the yarn, which worked out beautifully on these booties.
Pattern: Anna’s Booties by Anna Testadoro
Yarn: Regia sock yarn.
Needle size: 2.5mm
Knitting time: February 2013.
I do hope you’re not getting bored of my booties yet, I’ve got another pair that I knitted back in September 2010. And there are more still to come, don’t worry! This is my bootie pattern that can be found on Ravelry. As I’ve already said a few times, I love knitting these booties (it probably has something to do with the fact that I’ve knitted hundreds and hundreds of them).
I made this pair for a friend from school, I had spoken to him in the summer about a reunion I was organising and he mentioned that he and his wife were expecting. He told me they were having a boy, hence the colour choice, and I really like the combination.
The white cuff finishes the booties off so nicely. I’ve not seen a picture of the baby wearing the booties and not sure if my friend liked them, but I’m sure he did.
I’ve got two projects to show you today. One of them is a mystery Christmas one, and its the second time I’m doing cables, I love them! I’m quite pleased I decided to knit this project as I’m finally using a ball of black wool…I don’t normally have any use for black wool. I just can’t make black baby clothes.
The second project is a bigger pair of my booties for my best friend Kerstin’s little boy Tom. She’s ordered them from me, so I need to get a move on and finish them.
Here’s another pair of my booties. The pattern is available on Ravelry, or get in touch with me if you’re interested.
This pair was knit out of Drops Safran as it was for my friends niece who lives in South Africa.
I made this as part of a combination which included a bonnet, which I just blogged about recently.
And here’s a nice final picture of the combo.
