FO: 2 x Beanies and Booties

Back in July 2015 a friend ordered two beanie and booties combinations from me that she was going to gift on to other friends.

I used this pattern that I’ve used many, many times and to be honest I didn’t really need to follow it exactly as I remember it all perfectly.

For both I used DROP Muskat, one set in navy blue and light olive and the other in navy blue and light mint.

I used the same colour combination for the booties.

The booties are my version of the Saartjes Bootees pattern, which I should really write up and share. I normally manage to knit them up in 2 hours, which is pretty good going I think.

Both were well received as far as I understand.

FO: Baby Booties

Earlier this year I made another pair of booties for an ex-colleague of mine who had a beautiful baby girl.

Back when I knit these I didn’t know that it would be a girl, so I went with a unisex white and yellow combination.

Since my friend lived in California at the time I also used cotton yarn rather than wool, just to make sure that they wouldn’t be too hot for the baby.

Regular readers of my blog will know this pattern, and it’s my version of Saartjes Bootees, which I actually need to write up as it much quicker than the original pattern.
