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 can’t believe it’s been over two months since I last posted. We’ve been busy here with holidays coming to an end, my job being very busy and other things (watch this space).
I thought it might be a good idea to get back to posting my huge number of FO’s from the last few years (yes embarrassingly I have so many that I haven’t written about).
These booties were made for a friend from school who had a baby boy in 2012, I made him a pixie hat too and blogged about it here.
He was the lucky recipient of the booties I designed myself.
I still love this pattern, even though I mainly knit Saartjes Bootees at the moment for gifting. These little guys are brilliant because I can use up lots of leftover sock yarn for them.
They are great also because they are one of the few baby booties that actually stay on those cute little feet.
Here’s a quick shot of the bootie and pixie hat together.
And would you look at those sweet feet in the booties…
