FO: Baby Booties

Another pair of booties I knitted back in 2015.

These were knitted for a friend that used to lead the Forest School session that I attended with Luke. She had a baby boy in 2015.

I used some leftover DROPS Muskat cotton yarn from my stash. I chose cotton as he was a Summer baby.

These booties only take me about 2 hours to knit up, so they are a great item to gift when I need to make something quickly!

And of course I also made the box that they are gifted in.

Pattern: Baby booties, my own pattern.

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: Hat and Bootie Combo

In February last year I knitted a sweet beanie and booties combo for the daughter of my old client. She had a little girl later on in 2015.

At the time that I was knitting these I didn’t know whether they were having a boy or a girl, so I picked these neutral colours.

I don’t need to write anymore about these booties, I think, I’ve knitted them often enough and written about them often enough too.

And the beanie is an old favourite too from DROPS Design, I’ve blogged about it loads too before.

LP 9

Here’s the combo in all it’s glory, it was very well received too!

FO: Baby Booties

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

KJW 1

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.

KJW 2

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.

KJW 3

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.

KJW 4And of course they also got their own box.

FO: Baby Socks

Here are some baby socks from 2012 that I knitted for a friend from school who’s partner had a baby boy back then.

DD 1

I used DROPS Fabel yarn for the socks and my friend picked the colour combination.

DD 2

I have to say I love these colours for a boy, very vibrant and for some reason just looking at them make my feet warm.

DD 3

And I used my own pattern and just made them as big as they needed to be for a 12-18 months old.

FO: Baby Booties

Following on from yesterday’s post, I also knitted my friend some booties. You’ve all seen these, I’ve knitted my fair share of them in the last few years.

IF 26

I decided to use the same colour cotton as the cardigan yesterday. I love the colour, but I was worried that it might be a bit too matching, but in the end it was actually fine.

IF 27

While I previously used DROPS Merino Extra Fine for these booties, I now always stick with DROPS Muskat, which works very well.

IF 28

I had some buttons in my stash that I used, which I think work well and are definitely unisex.

IF 29

I haven’t seen these on, but I am sure they looked adorable on my friends little boy.

FO: Baby Socks

My second post in the series of items I knitted for my good friend from school. These are just a very quick pair of socks.

BB 1I was able to use some more of my stash and red is always a good colour, no matter whether it’s a boy or a girl!

BB 2I love knitting baby socks because they knit up so quickly and are so easy. I’m often able to finish a pair in an evening or so.

FO: Baby Socks

I’ve been going through my old pictures again and here’s a pair of socks that I knitted for my friends little girl early this year. You might remember seeing her on here wearing the tiny little yellow hat.

They’re my bog standard, straightforward sock knitting pattern and I love the colours. It’s a sock yarn that I bought in Germany, and I love the effect of the stripes.
