An ex-colleague of mine had a little girl earlier this year and I knitted her a pair of my old favourite, my version of Saartjes Bootees.
I don’t need to explain these much anymore, I guess?
I still love these booties, especially as they can be worn by either baby boy or baby girl (maybe in a different colour combination?)
And of course I made a box for them to be kept safe when posting and maybe even as a keepsake when they don’t fit baby anymore.
My friend was kind enough to send me her gorgeous girl wearing them, and doesn’t she look adorable and very pleased with herself? I love how she’s holding her little hands…too cute.
