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.

FO: Beanie and Booties, inc. Sweet Boy

A friend that I studied Journalism with had a baby boy at the start of this year. Even though I haven’t seen my friend since I finished my studies in 2004 I still wanted to knit her something. So I knitted my usual go-to beanie and bootie combo.

The beanie is my old favourite from DROPS, and I knit this up in the 0-3 months size since it was going to be a Winter baby.

I also knitted up my version of Saartjes Bootees in a matching green and light blue.

I boxed both of them up in one of my boxes and sent them off to my friend.

My friend sent me a picture of her sweet little boy in his little hat. Such a cutie.
